As head of the region’s medical staff, Dr. Anil is responsible for providing leadership and guidance, as well as promoting effective communication between medical staff and administration.
Dr. Anil is a urogynecologist within the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department. He performs surgery and treatment of conditions that affect the female pelvic organs, muscles and connective tissue that support the organs, as well as surgical and non-surgical treatment of non-cancerous gynecologic problems. Some of the common problems treated include urinary leakage, pelvic organ prolapse and overactive bladder.
“Pelvic floor disorders are more prevalent than one might think and affect women of all ages, as well as male patients,” says Dr. Anil, who also serves as an assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine. “While childbirth is the most common cause of the need for reconstructive pelvic surgery, other risk factors include obesity, diabetes, genetic factors and even occupational hazards, such as heavy lifting.”
Originally from Turkey, Dr. Anil completed his residency training at West Virginia University, Charleston, West Virginia, and Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas. Prior to his new position, he practiced in La Crosse and Onalaska, Wisconsin, and was a doctor with Mayo Clinic Health System – Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse since 2007.
Dr. Anil’s special medical interests include female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, urinary incontinence, minimally invasive pelvic surgery, advanced laparoscopy and robotic surgery. He is the only board-certified female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery sub-specialist in the region.
“Mayo Clinic’s values are my personal values,” says Dr. Anil. “The patient’s needs come first. We treat everyone with respect and dignity. It’s important to be an empathetic, caring, compassionate provider and also offer high-quality minimally invasive care in a patient-friendly environment.”
Mayo Clinic Health System consists of clinics, hospitals and other facilities that serve the health care needs of people in more than 60 communities in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The community-based providers, paired with the resources and expertise of Mayo Clinic, enable patients in the region to receive the highest-quality health care close to home.
