Personal Philosophy

Sumana KoduriShe 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.
