medical school at the University of Michigan and residency in Ob/Gyn at the University of
Chicago. He has held many leadership roles within the Piedmont system, including being the
first elected President of the Medical staff at Piedmont Fayette Hospital and the Chief of
Department for Women’s Services in the first 2 years of maternity services at Fayette. In 2006,
as the maternity services were just beginning at Fayette, he founded Women’s Specialists of
Fayette.
Dr. Cook has delivered over 4000 babies and with his partners has helped in managing many
more pregnancies. His experience covers the full spectrum from low risk, all natural pregnancies
to high risk pregnancies complicated by co-existing medical problems or multiple gestations.
Dr. Cook has remained at the cutting edge of gynecologic care, from surgical innovations, to
medical advances as well as alternative approaches. He and his partners have taken minimally
invasive gynecologic surgery beyond the robot. Single site laparoscopy, a technique in which he
and his partners have developed a great deal of experience and expertise, offers patients a wide
array of relatively complicated surgeries which can all be done through a single belly button
incision as an outpatient. Dr. Cook also has extensive experience with pelvic prolapse repair
surgery as well urinary incontinence surgery and alternative management.
