First Female-Led Urology Practice Opens in Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant is now home to the first female-led Urology practice in the area. Just yesterday, East Cooper Urology opened its doors and began seeing patients. The practice is being led by Dr. Stefanie Seixas-Mikelus, a Board Certified, national fellowship trained urologist that specializes in Urologic Oncology and Robotic Surgery using the state-of-the-art DaVinci surgery system.

Dr. Seixas-Mikelus is a native of New York City and when she is not caring for patients, she can be found either playing with her two dogs, at the beach or on a boat, at the golf course with her husband, exploring new restaurants or in the studio writing songs.
