Teki Hegwood, MD, MBA, FACOG
To be the best, you must train with the best and always strive to improve your skills. As a board-certified OB/GYN with over 25 years experience, this has been my mantra. I attended medical school at the University of Iowa College of Medicine, then went on to complete an OB/GYN residency in St. Paul, MN. I received recognition for my surgical skills as a resident achieving the Excellence in Gynecologic Laparoscopy Award. The learning did not stop with residency though as I have continued to achieve and maintain board certification as well as complete the Physician Executive MBA program at Auburn University.
One's experience is as much a part of the professional development process, I have continued to hone my skills by learning from those around me and adopting the best practices for the betterment of my patients.
While OB/GYN has been the focus of my training, I have found aesthetic medicine to be an important aspect of women’s health that was previously ignored by traditional Western medicine. Once again, I sought out training from the best, so it was only natural to learn from a co-founder of platelet rich plasma technology, Dr. Arun Garg. The utilization of PRP technology is diverse and can be utilized for hair restoration, facial aesthetics, sexual dysfunction, urinary incontinence, and even joint pains. As an OB/GYN, traditional medicine has lacked a holistic approach to healing for women, especially in the areas of sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence. As a member of the Cellular Medical Association, I join thousands of other physicians who have opted in leveraging the body's own healing potential to provide solutions for patients that have not been available in traditional Western medicine.
