Fields Center for Women’s Health & Robotic Surgery
Combining the Latest Medical Innovations with Compassionate Care
A longtime advocate for advanced medical care access for women in medicine and surgery, Dr. Michael Fields has also championed health and wellness with a specific comprehensive approach to each individual woman. Known nationally for his contribution to quality patient care in the operating room setting, that same passion exists in his medical practice. He is complemented by a phenomenal team of compassionate, skilled health professionals. Fields Center for Women’s Health & Robotic Surgery launched in 2010 and has become known not only for bringing innovative technology into the office setting, but also for their unique, authentic attention to each individual patient.
Led by Anya Zerilla, WHNP, and the exciting addition of Catherine Kingery, WHNP, they offer you a snapshot of this long-standing, unique practice. From body contouring and vaginal rejuvenation to hormone replacement therapy and weight loss, the office is the true definition of comprehensive, holistic care.
Michael Fields, MD, FACOG
Dr. Fields performed the first gynecologic robotic minimally invasive procedure in the region in 2006 and has since become a pioneer in the field. He has contributed to the development of multiple robotic procedures, including endometriosis resection, nerve sparing hysterectomy, removal of fibroids and prolapse surgeries, and teaches these procedures across the nation. He established protocols that are used internationally for a safer and more efficient operating room with a focus not only on patient outcome, but patient experience as well. With a nurse for a mother and a Baptist minister for a father, he stands out in the surgery world with his bedside manner and time spent with each individual patient.
“Our commitment to technical expertise and personal attention to each patient is of utmost importance, whether in surgery or in the office,” said Dr. Fields.
Outside of the operating room, Dr Fields is a proud father of two children and tries his best not to miss a sporting event or extracurricular activity. He also enjoys backpacking and fly fishing. He describes himself as an amateur musician and plays several instruments.
