About Me

All women deserve access to dedicated specialists who will listen to their concerns and treat their symptoms seriously. I became a gynecologic surgeon because I’m passionate about offering high quality, evidence-based surgical solutions tailored to each individual's unique needs and values. I’m committed to providing my patients with the best care possible and helping them to understand all of the health care options available.

Whenever possible, I provide my patients with minimally invasive options that will shorten recovery times and decrease postoperative pain. I perform surgeries using robotics and advanced laparoscopy and offer single-incision and vaginal surgery when appropriate. I aim to stay at the forefront of surgical innovation and can provide vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (Vnotes) and transcervical radiofrequency ablation for fibroids, using advanced technology known as Sonata®.

The most common conditions I treat include endometriosis, fibroids, heavy or painful periods, ovarian cysts and pelvic pain. My research is focused on ways to optimally treat these conditions and how to improve quality of life.

My fellowship in advanced gynecologic surgery and pelvic pain at the Mayo Clinic inspired me to remain in academic medicine. I love serving as a mentor to medical students and resident physicians. Because of the rich expertise of my colleagues and the diverse resources available to us, I believe The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is able to provide better and more complete care to patients.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and playing with my dog. I also enjoy cooking, reading and exploring Columbus.

    Dr. Missal took time to listen to my concerns and gave me so many options for my issues. I really appreciated the care I received from her. I feel like my concerns were finally heard and she gave me options on things to try to help me feel better rather than just giving me the "I don't know how to help you" and sending me somewhere else like I have experienced in the past.
