Voted by other doctors as the Denver urogynecologist that they would want to treat them and their families
Denver – Karlotta Davis, MD, MPH has been named as one of the “Top Docs of 2013” in Denver by 5280 Magazine. The prestigious listing, in its 20th year, recognizes Denver-area physicians cited by their peers as the tops in their field. This is the second year in a row Dr. Davis has received such accolades for her work in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery. She also won best OB-GYN doctor in 1998.
Davis, who has served as head of quality assurance for the OB-GYN department since 2000, has spearheaded efforts to reduce accidents and medical oversights. In 2011, the University of Colorado Hospital system was ranked the highest-performing academic hospital in the United States for the delivery of quality health care.
Operating under the theory that physicians are best qualified to judge other physicians, 5280 Magazine surveys doctors in the metro Denver area and asks them which doctor they would want to treat themselves and their families. The surveyed doctors make their picks by specialty. Any licensed physician in Colorado can participate in the online survey.
Dr. Davis chose the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery because she believes that incontinence and prolapse is a hidden epidemic, noting that many women do not bring up their concerns in this area with their doctors.
Improving women’s quality of life is what Dr. Davis likes most about her work. Her special medical interests include vaginal repair of prolapse, minimally invasive incontinence surgery and the effects of birth on the pelvic floor.
She is proud to provide evidence-based options that take into consideration her patient’s goals and desires as the highest priority. Dr. Davis is focused on patient interaction, particularly in communicating complex issues, so the patient understands what is going on.
Outside of work, Dr. Davis enjoys playing the flute with local symphonies, having trained with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Academy.
