Avita K. Pahwa
Assistant Professor of Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology
Obstetrics & Gynecology
2020 Zonal Avenue Health Sciences Campus Los Angeles
+1 323 409 3416

Overview

Avita Pahwa, MD, is a fellowship trained Urogynecology specialist whose clinical interests involve pelvic floor disorders and the management of urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and benign conditions of the vagina and urethra. Her research interests include patient-specific treatment of fecal incontinence and physical activity effects on urinary incontinence.
Dr. Pahwa is happy to return to the LAC+USC Medical Center, where she completed her obstetrics and gynecology training and served as chief resident.

Philosophy of Care:
Women’s health concerns such as incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse are sensitive topics that are often understandably difficult to discuss, not only with family but also with your doctor. I look to change that, giving patients the time they need to openly communicate their feelings and medical concerns. I am honored to take care of women throughout all stages of their adult life and seek to provide the best patient-centered, evidence-based care that keeps each individual’s health goals in mind.
