About Our Practice
Dr. Susan C. Capelle
Dr. Susan C. Capelle is originally from Maryland and moved to West Virginia in 1980 when her family moved to Western Maryland and West Virginia. She graduated from West Virginia University School of Medicine in 1991. During medical school she received the first E.B. Flink Award for Excellence in Internal Medicine and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. She then completed residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology from Magee Womens Hospital of the University of Pittsburgh in 1995. After 2 years in private practice she returned to Magee Womens Hospital to complete a Fellowship in Urogynecology; now called Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.
In 2000 she moved back to WV to be closer to her family, and started a private practice specializing in Gynecology and Urogynecology. She works primarily out of Monongalia General Hospital and is also a Clinical Instructor with the WVU Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
She became interested in Urogynecology when she realized how common and inadequately treated urinary incontinence and pelvic support/prolapse disorders are in women of all ages. Her focus is in the surgical and non-surgical care of women with these conditions. She prefers the most minimally invasive approach if surgery is required.
Dr. Capelle is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Fellow in the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. In 2014 she will also be board eligible for the recently established Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery subspecialty certification.
