ABOUT DR. TATE

Dr. Tate is a fellowship-trained, board certified Urogynecologist in Pasadena, California. She specializes in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders, incontinence, prolapse, vaginal and bladder problems. She has now incorporated cosmetic gynecologic procedures, including labiaplasty, into her practice. She completed medical school at the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine, ObGyn Residency at Yale University-New Haven Hospital, and her Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. “As a specialist in pelvic reconstructive surgery in a busy practice, I always had patients inquiring about labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation. I realized it was just as important to try to master these procedures as advanced pelvic reconstructive surgery.”
