About Dr. Marsha K. Guess

Dr. Marsha K. Guess received her medical degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine in 1997. She went on to complete her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UCLA and a fellowship in the Female Pelvic Medicine and Constructive Surgery division at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York. She also received her Master of Science, with distinction, in 2006.

From 2006 until 2015, Dr. Guess was an assistant professor of both obstetrics and gynecology and urology at the Yale School of Medicine’s Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery division in New Haven, Connecticut. She joined the University of Colorado’s Urogynecology division in 2016.

Dr. Guess’s research interests include increasing women’s knowledge about pelvic floor disorders and understanding the pathophysiology of these conditions, particularly as they relate to pregnancy, childbirth and sexual dysfunction.

Dr. Guess has been the recipient of the Excellence in Teaching award on three occasions and has also been recognized for her commitment to community service. She has donated her time and efforts locally, as well as in Africa and Central America, where she has participated in medical missions treating underserved women who suffer with pelvic floor disorders.

In her spare time, Dr. Guess enjoys traveling, hiking, playing tennis and spending quality time with her family and her close circle of friends around the country.
