Ninivaggio, Cara Fellow


I am originally from New York, and went to SUNY Stony Brook in Suffolk County on Long Island for my medical education.  I stayed there for my residency training in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and for 1 year after residency, worked as junior faculty and gained additional training in laparoscopy and robotic gynecologic surgery.

I am currently a fellow here at University of New Mexico in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.  So, naturally, my clinical interests lie in medically and surgically treating female pelvic floor disorders.  The fellowship program offers stellar mentoring both clinically and academically, exposure to a multitude of pathologies and patients from all walks of life.  I am so excited to be here in New Mexico experiencing a part of the country to which I have never been exposed, and I look forward to my three years of training here.

  • I am still early in my fellowship, and cannot wait to further cultivate my research interests.
