Dr. Rickey is board certified by the American Board of Urology with subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Prior to coming to Yale, Dr. Rickey was an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine where she developed the Women’s Center for Continence and Pelvic Health. She specializes in minimally invasive approaches for treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, including laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal procedures.

Dr. Rickey received her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and went on to complete a Urology residency and an accredited fellowship in Urogynecology/Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center. Her fellowship training in Urogynecology took place in a unique program that integrated highly skilled physicians from both Urology and Gynecology programs. This experience has given her the expertise to provide the most advanced care available for women with problems related to the lower urinary tract and the pelvic floor including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and genital-urinary tract fistulas. Dr. Rickey is also committed to making advances in women’s health and has been an investigator in the NIH sponsored Urinary Incontinence Treatment Network for the past 5 years. Her philosophy towards treatment of pelvic floor disorders starts with education so that the patient is empowered to make informed choices about her own treatment. In addition, Dr. Rickey’s specialized training gave her experience with a broad range of surgical and non-surgical therapies and allows her to provide personalized care options for each patient.
