Erlanger Women's Health
According to Dr. Carson Kaeser, many of the issues he addresses in his practice – such as incontinence, vaginal prolapse, and others – are unfortunately thought of as “taboo.” He adds, “These same conditions are also thought to be part of the normal aging process, which isn’t the case. These issues should be brought up with your doctor if they are bothering you. You should not suffer in silence.” Dr. Kaeser wants his patients to know that they have options, and that for most patients, their issues can be significantly improved with the proper care. “Urogynecology is a great field of medicine because I address quality of life issues of my patients that are usually interfering with their daily life,” he shares. “Many times the treatments I can offer, whether medical or surgical, can make a big difference in a woman’s life.”

1. What sets your practice apart?
My practice is focused only on women’s health as it pertains to urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, vaginal atrophy, urinary tract infections, fistulas, and a host of other symptoms.
2. Why did you choose to become a doctor?
I was in construction for years prior to going into medicine. I was at work one day and something told me that I needed to do something that could make a huge difference in people’s lives. It occurred to me that I needed to go into medicine.
3. What would you consider to be your main strengths?
I think that one of my main strengths is listening. I want to treat every patient the way I would want my wife or mother to be treated.
4. What accolades mean the most to you?
Providing compassionate care to my patients is my number one goal, but I also take great pride in teaching my OBGYN residents. As an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine, Chattanooga, winning the National Faculty Award for Excellence in Resident Education from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology was very important to me.
5. What is your philosophy when it comes to the care of your patients?
Taking the time to listen to patients, asking important questions, doing a thorough physical exam, and making sure the patient’s goals are met and that they are satisfied with the compassionate care that they receive.
