Kimberly Swan, MD, FACOG

swan-kimberlyKimberly Swan, MD, is excited to return to the Kansas City area and begin practicing at The University of Kansas Hospital, the same hospital where she herself was born. After graduating from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, she completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Exempla Saint Joseph's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

She returns to Kansas City after completing a fellowship in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (accredited by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists) in Orlando, Florida. During her fellowship, Dr. Swan trained with internationally recognized pioneers in minimally invasive gynecology. She performed hundreds of laparoscopic and robotic procedures. She has lectured, taught, and performed live surgery both nationally and internationally. Dr. Swan has a number of publications in the scientific literature and is also a member of many medical associations, including ACOG and AAGL.

Despite these achievements, Dr. Swan's greatest joy is taking care of patients. All of her patients have unique needs and concerns, which Dr. Swan strives to understand and address. She believes that patients deserve to be informed of all treatment options (surgical and nonsurgical) and allowed to make informed decisions about their care. Dr. Swan specializes in treating a wide range of complex gynecologic problems. She is proud to offer minimally invasive techniques to her patients, which helps shorten patient recovery time. While in medical school, Dr. Swan underwent gynecologic surgery and believes that the experience gave her a more intimate understanding of the gynecologic patient.

Dr. Swan loves living in Kansas City with her husband (a medical internist) and two children. She credits her family with keeping her grounded, balanced and happy. She credits the BBQ for her time spent in the gym.
