    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Abigail Shatkin-Margolis cares for patients with female pelvic floor disorders. She specializes in diagnosing and treating pelvic organ prolapse (when an organ such as the bladder drops into the vagina), urinary and fecal incontinence, genitourinary and rectovaginal fistulas (abnormal connections between various pelvic organs), overactive bladder and bladder pain syndrome.

    In research, Shatkin-Margolis is interested in improving treatment and surgical outcomes for patients with these conditions, as well as investigating disparities in care.

    Shatkin-Margolis received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Kaiser Permanente and a fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at TriHealth's Good Samaritan Hospital.

    Shatkin-Margolis educates medical students and has won numerous awards for her teaching. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking and practicing yoga.
