NEWTON – Newton Memorial Hospital is proud to announce that Paul M. Littman, D.O., has joined the medical staff.
Dr. Littman is a gynecologist with training in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery, a subspecialty which is dedicated to the study and treatment of pelvic floor disorders in women. Specifically, Dr. Littman has received additional training in the evaluation and treatment of vaginal/uterine prolapse, stress incontinence, urinary urgency, urinary retention, pelvic/bladder pain and sexual dysfunction.
“Many times, women who have given birth can experience various disorders of the pelvic floor that can adversely affect their quality of life,” Dr. Littman said. “I am trained in diagnosing, treating and, in some cases, performing minimally invasive surgery to help women regain control of their bladder and female organs.”
Dr. Littman in 2009 joined Skylands Urology, P.A., in Sparta. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester and his medical degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. He expects to receive his Masters of Science in Clinical Research Design in August 2010 from Drexel University.
He completed his residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo in the Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics, where he was Administrative Chief Resident from July 2006 to June 2007. He has received additional training at Morristown Memorial Hospital in the Department of Urogynecology & Female Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery.
“We’re excited to have Dr. Littman on staff,” said David Lazarus, M.D., Newton Memorial Hospital’s Vice President of Medical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer. “He’s a valuable addition to an already skilled team of obstetricians and gynecologists and allows us to continue to expand the community’s access to vital healthcare services, including Urogynecology. Now, our patients no longer have to travel long distances for this care.”
Dr. Littman has several publications and has given presentations in the field of Urogynecology.
“This region has so much to offer in terms of quality of life for my family, but, more importantly, I have the opportunity to fill a need in this community with my background and expertise,” Dr. Littman said.
