About Jessica Opoku-Anane, MD
Jessica Opoku-Anane, MD, MS is a board-certified gynecologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. She is a specialist in the treatment of uterine fibroids, menstrual disorders, endometriosis and pelvic pain, ovarian pathology, intrauterine scarring (Asherman's), alternatives to hysterectomy, and advanced gynecologic surgery. Her thoughtful approach to patients and individualized treatment plans allow her to provide exceptional care that addresses the needs of all patients. In particular, she strives to provide a minimally invasive approach to her patients' surgical needs whenever possible. This includes laparoscopy and robotic surgery through small keyhole incisions and hysteroscopy. She also offers many office-based procedures including hysteroscopy.
Dr. Opoku-Anane obtained her medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and went on to complete her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Harvard Brigham and Women's and Massachusetts General Hospitals. She received several awards, including the prestigious AAGL award for excellence in endoscopic surgery. She subsequently completed an AAGL fellowship in advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) at George Washington University and trained at the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta.
In addition to her clinical activities, she has been active in research and spent two years with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) both locally and in sub-Saharan Africa. Her current research includes a randomized control trial to test the ability of antifibrinolytics to decrease blood loss during myomectomy, a prospective study to determine how best to teach trainees to do robotic surgery using surgical simulation, and a study on environmental exposures that enhance fibroid growth and disease burden. Dr. Opoku-Anane also has a longstanding interest in global health and spent extended periods of time throughout Africa on clinical and research programs. She has recently published a systematic review article on increasing laparoscopic surgery in developing countries and assists with the development of laparoscopic programs throughout sub-Saharan Arica. She is also a fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a member of the American Association of Laparoscopic Gynecologists and the World Endometriosis Society.
