Dr. Ene George, MD, FACOG, FPMRS.
Dr. Ene George is a board certified female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgeon (urogynecologist) who lives and works in southern California, US.
Born and raised in Jos, Nigeria, she moved the united states in the in the early 1990’s to complete her medical training.
She graduated from Jos University Teaching Hospital in Nigeria, completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and fellowship in Urogynecology at the University of California in Irvine.
Here in the US, her work as a board certified Urogynecologist allows her to restore quality of life to women of all ages but especially those in the older demographic. However, her roots fuel her greatest passion: this is to help women in Africa, especially Nigeria, afflicted with the devastation of obstetric fistula – a life sentence in an African woman’s life.
Apart from dealing with the torment of losing a baby, these women are often ostracized from their families and communities because they have no control of their urinary and or bowel movements due to no fault of their own.
Although she currently lives and works in the US, she makes frequent trips to Africa to work with these women afflicted by obstetric birth trauma injury.
Most of her work has been concentrated at the Evangel Hospital in Jos, which has created a fistula center for these women, a refuge where they can get their fistulas surgically treated, regain physical, spiritual and emotional nourishment and also learn life skills so they can be re-introduced into society.
She has also volunteered her services at the National Obstetric Fistula Center in Abakaliki, Nigeria, Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital in Nakuru, Kenya and Kisumu east district hospital in Kenya.
