Chappaqua, New York—November 25, 2019— CareMount Medical, the largest, independent multi-specialty medical group in New York State, is pleased to announce Pakeeza Alam, MD, FACOG, Urogynecologist, has been named a 2019 recipient of Westfair Communications, Inc.’s Millennial Award. The annual award celebrates and recognizes individuals from the millennial generation who are leaving their footprints in the healthcare, technology and business communities in Westchester and Fairfield counties.
“We applaud Dr. Alam for being recognized as one of the up-and-coming leaders in the healthcare field and for her outstanding commitment to our patients,” said Scott D. Hayworth, MD, FACOG, President and CEO of CareMount Medical. “As one of only a handful of urogynecologists in Westchester County, Dr. Alam’s services are available for patients coping with a variety of women’s urologic and gynecologic issues.”
Upon joining CareMount Medical in 2018, Dr. Alam established a new urogynecological practice, which focuses on the full range of pelvic floor disorders and includes comprehensive diagnostic services in order to identify an optimal treatment tailored to a woman’s individual condition, including a broad range of non-surgical and surgical options. Dr. Alam specializes in the diagnoses and treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders, specifically urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, recurrent UTIs, anal incontinence, pelvic floor fistula, vaginal mesh complications, and painful bladder syndrome. As a pelvic reconstructive surgeon, she performs a range of minimally invasive surgeries for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence including vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
“I am honored and humbled to be named as one of this year’s Millennial Award honorees,” said Dr. Pakeeza Alam. “Observing the comfort and newfound improvement in the quality of life of my patients remains a driving force that keeps me invested in my patients’ care. I continuously strive to help women achieve maximum success and minimal discomfort, so they can return to normal life as quickly as possible.”
As part of her commitment to women’s health, Dr. Alam has traveled to Rwanda on a medical and surgical mission to care for women with extensive vaginal fistulas, related to childbirth, who had no access to advanced surgical care.
