GRANITE CITY — Srilakshmi Vuyyuru, M.D. has joined the Obstetrics and Gynecology department at McKinley Health Center, 2166 Madison Ave. in Granite City, Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation has announced.
She has a special interest in laparoscopy and minimally invasive surgery, which is setting a new paradigm by diminishing pain and reducing recovery time for patients.
“From an obstetrical standpoint, I have the opportunity to share in the greatest day of a family’s life,” said Vuyyuru. “Almost every baby I deliver brings joy, which is an amazing thing to experience. If there is an issue that develops, I am there for the family emotionally and physically to help them through it. Fortunately, there are far more good days than bad, but even in the bad times, it’s rewarding that my patients trust me to be part of their lives.”
