About Me

I became a gynecologic surgeon because I’m passionate about being a champion for women’s health. All women deserve access to dedicated specialists who will listen to their concerns and treat their pain seriously. 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. I perform surgeries using robotics and procedures like advanced laparoscopy, single-incision and vaginal surgeries.

The most common conditions I treat include heavy and painful periods, endometriosis, pelvic floor dysfunction, painful intercourse, ovarian cysts, hormonal management and incontinence. My research is focused on ways to alleviate pain from these conditions and how to improve surgical outcomes.

At The Ohio State University, I love serving as a mentor to medical students. My fellowship in advanced gynecologic surgery and pelvic pain at the Mayo Clinic inspired me to remain in academic medicine. As an academic medical center, 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. Misal is taking over from my previous gyno; she is familiar with my condition & gave solid advice for some symptoms

  • Reviewed on Nov 09, 2022

    Dr. Misal was up front about my options, providing both pros & cons, offering her professional opinion and then her personal opinion when asked. Her demeanor during my visit put me at ease and instilled confidence in my decision.

    Dr. Misal was very kind, gentle and caring! A good listener.

  • Reviewed on Oct 28, 2022

    Dr. Misal is probably the best doctor I've ever had. She listens to me, and she actually wants to hear what I have to say. The appointment is a conversation rather than just her at the computer typing stuff not really listening. She also is just very personable and made me feel comfortable even though we were talking about surgery.

    10/10 went way above & beyond. She was so knowledgeable.

  • Reviewed on Jul 18, 2022

    She was the missing puzzle piece to getting my issues sorted out. I've bounced around to doctors who just don't know what's wrong. But she was incredibly knowledgeable and gave me info I needed
