Laura Grant, MD, NCMP, board certified in Obstetrics/Gynecology, has been practicing in Columbia, Missouri since 1994. Twelve years and hundreds of babies later, she made the decision to give up the practice of obstetrics and focus exclusively on gynecology and preventative care for women. Recognizing the value of a more personalized approach to healthcare for women, she cofounded in 2007, along with husband Dr. Mark Grant, Women’s Wellness Center.
Hormone Therapy for Perimenopause and Beyond
Dr. Laura specializes in providing hormone therapy for perimenopausal and postmenopausal women, and she has earned the credential of NAMS Certified Menopause Practitioner, awarded by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), the preeminent scientific organization focused on menopausal health. Those who hold the NCMP certification have demonstrated and maintain special competency in the field of menopause. It is Dr. Laura’s mission and passion to educate women about the importance of maintaining hormonal health after menopause, a field of study and practice that is woefully underrepresented and misunderstood, even within the medical community.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Another major focus of Dr. Laura Grant’s practice is non-invasive office-based treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, the root cause of bladder and bowel control problems: urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, urinary urgency/frequency, and fecal incontinence. Pelvic floor dysfunction is also the cause of many chronic pelvic pain conditions, such as chronic sexual or genital pain, chronic pelvic pain, and chronic bladder pain or interstitial cystitis. Millions of women have one or more manifestations of pelvic floor dysfunction, with absolutely no idea that effective treatment is available. Dr. Laura and her team are highly experienced in this area, restoring quality of life and health for women who present with a multitude of conditions that arise from dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles.
