15 Jul Koduri, Sumana, MD
Dr. Sumana Koduri joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical College of Wisconsin as an Assistant Professor in February, 2006. She received her Doctor of Medicine degree from Northwestern University Medical School in 1994. She then went on to complete her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Aurora Sinai Medical Center from 1994 to 1998. She continued onto a fellowship in Urogynecology at Northwestern University from 1998 to 2001. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
Dr. Koduri’s practice involves the evaluation and treatment of pelvic floor disorders such as Incontinence, Urinary Tract Infections, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Overactive Bladder, Interstitial Cystitis and Pelvic Pain. She emphasizes non-surgical as well as surgical treatment for the above and promotes minimally invasive surgeries.
She has a strong interest in education and is the Reproductive Module Director for the new innovative curriculum being implemented at the Medical College. She also believes in an educated patient and gives community talks all over the Milwaukee area on incontinence and prolapse.
While not being life threatening conditions, urogenital issues such as urinary incontinence and prolapse can have a strong negative impact on one’s quality of life. These issues are also viewed differently in various cultures. Her approach to a woman has always been towards improving this quality of life in a multimodal fashion.

In the News
I’m glad to drive 45 miles to get the care I need. After surgery I feel confident that I will feel better than I have in a long time.
I came on a referral and was truly scared. The entire staff made me feel that I was in the best hands, Dr. Koduri was wonderful and I was totally comfortable with her within 2 minutes. Outstanding staff.
I love the respect and dignity. It is unlike other medical centers I’ve been to. It is exceptional!!
I love Dr. Koduri and her staff, residents etc. The BEST care I’ve received anywhere. I recommend her to others.
I have no complaints and staff was accommodating in what I needed. Dr Koduri I like very much…I feel very good Doctor.
Have had quite a bit of contact with the nursing staff in WISH to properly learn to select and use the appropriate medicines, etc. Wonderful staff; always pleasant and helpful!
This time there was almost an hour wait; but understandable as Dr. Koduri had an emergency. The staff apologized and kept me informed as to the status. I simply did not mind waiting as Dr. Koduri is the BEST!!! And when she came, the biopsy went very well. My motto–don’t worry until you have to; but do what must be done for excellent health.
I feel that Dr. Koduri is excellent with the training that I need just now as an obstetrician, urologist and internal medicine credentials. I demand the best, especially as a 26 year cancer survivor, and the entire staff honors that expectation. Faced with some challenge just now, I feel secure in their care. Always I want the emphasis on a team approach.
At my appointment with Dr. Koduri, she immediately put me at ease after I described my symptoms. Her response was genuinely compassionate, concerned, knowledgeable, and reassuring. She performed a gentle physical examination. Her conclusion called for remedial action. She instilled in me a faith in her as a physician and a human being. I am compelled to share this positive experience regarding Dr. Koduri with everyone!
