Kevin Stepp, MD, completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at MetroHealth/Cleveland Clinic. He then completed a 3-year, combined fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery and Urogynecology/Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. After his fellowship, he returned to MetroHealth Medical Center where he served as Fellowship Director in Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery. He has received numerous awards including the AUGS/SGS President's Award for Prize Paper on Perioperative Complications in Elderly Urogynecology Patients. He is a two time recipient of the AAGL Golden Laparoscope award (AAGL's most prestigious award) for his videos on “Principles of Laparoscopic Suturing” and "Single Incision Laparoscopy Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy with Sacral Colpopexy," and has served on the Golden Laparoscope Award Review Committee. He is an active reviewer for multiple medical journals and has mentored obstetrics and gynecology residents during their training.
Since completing his residency, he has used or evaluated almost every new surgical technology used in gynecologic laparoscopy to date. He is confident that his patients have the opportunity to receive the most advanced and best care possible. He is a thought leader and has been invited to teach, lecture, or present his research at several educational venues around the United States. He is currently one of only a few gynecologists in the world performing Single Incision Laparoscopy/Single Port Access with the goal being faster recovery with less pain. The Single Incision Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is performed through a tiny single incision in the belly button and has the cosmetic advantage of essentially no visible scar.
As a board certified urogynecologist, he has additional training and expertise in conditions that affect the female pelvic organs (including the vagina, uterus, bladder and rectum) and the muscles and connective tissue that support those organs. Doctors often refer to a urogynecologist for urinary incontinence or when they suspect a problem with "the pelvic floor" or the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that help support and control the bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum.
