My name is Dr. Stuparich, (pronounced "stew-PAIR-itch"). I'm happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself and present my credentials to you. It's important that you feel comfortable with your gynecologist, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.
I was born in Princeton, New Jersey, but my family moved to San Diego, California when I was very young. After a few short years in southern California, we moved to northern Virginia. Ultimately, my family moved to Texas where I attended Baylor University in Waco, TX as an undergraduate and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX for medical school. I completed my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Parkland Health and Hospital System in Dallas, TX where I developed a passion for gynecologic surgery. I married my husband during residency, and he has been fantastically supportive as I pursue my career. I then completed a fellowship in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at Magee-Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA. In the meantime, my family had moved back to Southern California, so joining the team at Kaiser Permanente seemed to be a great fit.
As a minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon, I have an interest in abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, and endometriosis. These conditions deserve attention as they can significantly disrupt a woman's quality of life. I enjoy educating my patients about these processes and advising them about their treatment options. Each patient is a unique individual and should be treated as such. My patient and I work together as a team to optimize her treatment.
I strive to be active and eat healthy foods every day. I enjoy running and make it a point to run at least one half marathon each year. I have a garden at my house, which I enjoy tending to throughout the year given the lovely Southern California weather. I continue to learn about many different things by listening to educational podcasts. With my family nearby, I take advantage of every opportunity to see them.
