Biography

Dr. Saya Segal is a urogynecologist who specializes in the care of women with pelvic floor weakness resulting in conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse and bladder dysfunction.  The network of pelvic structures which normally support a woman's uterus, bladder and rectum may weaken with progressing age, childbirth, obesity and other factors resulting in conditions such as cystocele, rectocele, uterine prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder dysfunction and defecatory dysfunction.

Dr. Segal offers comprehensive care for women with the above conditions. Together with the Weill Cornell Medicine physicians in the Division of Urogynecology in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Segal’s patient treatment modalities include robotic, abdominal, and vaginal reconstructive surgery as well as medical and surgical treatment for urinary incontinence that span across a range of clinical options from guided pelvic muscle exercise to surgery for stress and/or urgency urinary incontinence. She also offers conservative management treatment options, such as in- office treatment for overactive bladder, and in office diagnostic procedures, like urodynamics and cystoscopy.

Dr. Segal, who is trained as both a physician and an epidemiologist, has conducted extensive research aimed at improving outcomes for women with urogynecology issues.  She has studied pelvic floor disorders in women across the age spectrum, and compared the outcomes of surgical versus conservative treatments for pelvic floor disorders.

Dr. Segal is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.  She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin, a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology from the University of Pennsylvania, and her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School.  After completing Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at New York University Medical Center, she completed an accredited three year fellowship in Urogynecology and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.  Dr. Segal joined NewYork-Presbyterian, Weill Cornell Medicine in 2017 as an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.  Prior to joining Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Segal worked in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
