Karen T. Greene is a native of New York who joined our practice in 1996. She received her undergrad and medical degrees from Duke University and then went on to complete her residency at the Medical College of Georgia. After being in the south for 12 years, she is a Yankee transplant who was voted Intern of the Year by the faculty and senior residents at MCG. Dr. Greene continues to bring that energetic spirit to Peachtree City OB/GYN. She is committed to her family as a wife and mother of two active boys but manages to also participate in the community with presentations on the latest women’s health topics to local civic groups.
Many of her patients are young teens whom she counsels as they transition into young adults. Dr. Greene strongly believes there is a need to support these young ladies and to provide information about the physical and emotional changes they will face as their bodies grow and develop during their teenage years.
As a mom herself, she realizes the gynecologic health challenges women must face during their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and as they approach menopause. She also offers hormonal therapy and support during menopause.
Advancing her considerable surgical skills is always on the forefront for Dr. Greene. She is a proficient surgeon in laparoscopy, operative hysteroscopy, urogynecological procedures and the daVinci Robot. Dr. Greene recognizes the need for advanced minimally invasive procedures that have a faster recovery and will allow today’s busy women to return to their careers and family in a shorter amount of time. Her recent continuing Medical Education: Advanced Laparoscopic Gynecological Surgery-A Hands on Course; OBNET Clinical and Risk Management Workshop.
