Dr. Ashley Womack Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgeon
NaPro Technology Medical Consultant Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Womack is a proud Texas native.
(1)

She graduated from Ursuline Academy and ventured to California for her undergraduate at the University of Southern California.

​Dr. Womack attended medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and Parkland Hospital. During medical school, she became a NaProTechnology Medical Consultant after an intensive course through the St. Paul VI Institute in Omaha, Nebras

ka. She then completed her 4-year Obstetrics & Gynecology (ObGyn) residency at the University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical and Seton Hospital. Dr. Womack decided to further advance her training in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) by completing an extra 2-year fellowship at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix. This fellowship gave her subspecialized training in treating advanced gynecologic diseases. She gained extra skills in minimally invasive surgeries including restorative reproductive surgeries that treat endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, cervical insufficiency, infertility, and more. After all her training, Dr. Womack is excited to be back in her hometown and accompany patients and families on their unique journeys - be it one of infertility, pregnancy, pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, menopause, or just general wellness. She feels honored and humbled to be able to share in some of life's most tender moments with her wonderful patients. She cannot wait to get to know you and be your ObGyn!

The robot πŸ€–is an awesome tool to use in gynecologic surgery... especially for those tough and delicate endometriosis excisions! The robot allows for finer movements enhanced by wrist articulation of the instruments. This helps me get to those small spaces near vital structures while respecting the surrounding tissue.

Here you can see the console where I operate the robotic instruments during surgery. Fun Fact: When I sit on the robot console, it is helpful to operate without my shoes so I can feel the pedals! No shoes? No problem! πŸ˜†

When it comes to your fertility, choose a surgeon who will go the extra mile to respect tissue health and integrity throughout surgery.

When it comes to fertility, a LOT happens in the fallopian tubes! Both s***m and egg travel through here, fertilization occurs, and the new little human makes its way to the uterus for implantation.

One of the first steps in an infertility work up is to make sure the tubes are open. In order to do this, we can utilize a selective hysterosalpingogram, or selective HSG. This is not your average HSG!

A general HSG can only diagnose a tubal issue, but a selective HSG can also TREAT certain kinds of tubal blockages, particularly a proximal tubal blockage.

But wait, there's more! During the selective HSG, we also measure intratubal pressure because sometimes, even if the tube spills (dye goes through the tube), the pressue can still be high signifying a partial obstruction. This can also be treated.

Did you know that almost ONE THIRD of babies in the United States are born by c-section? While c-sections can be wonderful aids to a healthy-mom-healthy-baby delivery, they can pose some issues postpartum...

A c-section scar defect is also called an "isthmocele" or a "uterine niche". Of course, not all women will have issues from said defect, but a niche can cause inflammation, bothersome bleeding/spotting, and/or fertility issues. At times, these defects will require repair which can be done hysteroscopically or laparoscopically. The approach depends on the size and depth of the defect as well as future fertility goals.

Here you can see the defect hysteroscopically (camera inside the uterus) which helps me to pinpoint it laparoscopically (inside the abdomen) and fully resect and repair it!

Creighton Model charting can show signs of a uterine niche which is another great reason to chart and track your cycles!! 😊

πŸ’›Let's talk ENDO!πŸ’› I see patients affected by endometriosis every. single. DAY. at my practice. Endometriosis is defined as endometrial glands and stroma (tissue normally on the inner wall of the uterus) that grow outside of the uterus. Common places endometriosis can grow are the pelvic walls, ovaries, behind the cervix, and re**um. There are MANY symptoms of endometriosis and it can be debilitating. But... you don't have to live this way!!

The only way to *officially* diagnose endometriosis is through a laparoscopic surgery where we take a biopsy of tissue to confirm endo. At the same time, I can also TREAT your endometriosis! The goal of surgery is OPTIMAL EXCISION - emphasis on both words. We want to TAKE OUT all visible disease, not just ablate it.

BONUS: My goal is to also prevent adhesion formation, optimize fertility, and leave your pelvis in better shape than when I found it!! More on that later πŸ™‚

There are so many things that I love about the Creighton Model and NaProTechnology, but my favorite is the emphasis on getting to the *root cause* of infertility. So many couples come looking for answers, and a holistic approach to work up can reveal a lot of ways that we can naturally optimize fertility.

As your doctor, I want to work *with* your body and not against it. I want to restore your body to its optimal function. That way, you can do what you were made to do!

I love helping women with their vulvar and vaginal health. Chronic discharges, itching, pain, burning, and dryness can cause so much discomfort (and, of course, make charting more difficult!). There is SO MUCH that we can do! A little closer look under the microscope, swabs, and pH measurements can tell us a lot. Don't just live with it, take charge of your health!

Happy Worldwide FertilityCare Week! THANK YOU Creighton Model and NaProTechnology for all you have done to HELP women and families!

I love it SO MUCH when women and couples chart their cycles. It allows me to have a real-time look into her health and elevates our conversation to the next level. I believe all women should chart their cycles for SO. MANY. REASONS! Health maintenance and self-knowledge being a great starting point 😊.
