Meet Dr. Biggerstaff

   

Thank you for visiting my web site and allowing me to introduce myself to you. I am a Board Certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and have devoted my life to serving the unique healthcare needs of women for more  than 25 years.










My primary focus and my passion
are on bringing the latest advances in the field to the women who have entrusted their care to me, ranging from the latest medications and newest therapies to advanced techniques and technologies in minimally invasive surgery. This quest and my interest in clinical research have led me to become one of a select number of physicians in the United States certified in Advanced Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy by the Accreditation Council for Gynecologic Endoscopy, Inc.  I was also honored in 2005-2006 by my physician colleagues as one of The Best Doctors in America (
www.bestdoctors.com), a worldwide listing of 50,000 top physician specialists in more than 400 subspecialties.
 
If there is anything more important to me than providing leading edge care, it is the focus on treating you as a person first, not just a patient. So, my staff and I are committed to:
 
  • Providing you friendly, unhurried care
  • Actively listening to what you have to say
  • Respecting your personal privacy
  • Being courteous at every point of contact with you
  • Clearly communicating to you essential information and instructions
  • Protecting your medical records and personal information
  • Providing timely follow-up
  • Giving you access to a wealth of health information to make you an informed healthcare consumer
It would be a privilege to serve as your physician.
 

More about Dr. Biggerstaff
 
On the Professional Side…

Dr. Biggerstaff has served as Chairman for the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and as Chief of Staff (2003-2004) for Candler Hospital in Savannah.  He is currently serving (2006-2007) as
chairman of the credentialling committee for St. Joseph's/Candler Health System.
 
A recognized leader and physician teacher in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology locally, regionally and nationally, Dr. Biggerstaff participates and has participated in a number of professional organizations including:

     American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
     American Society for Reproductive Medicine
     American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine
     Medical Association of Georgia
     Medical Society of Georgia
     Gynecologic Surgery Society
     American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists
     North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
     International Society for Gynecologic Laparoscopy
     American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery

Dr. Biggerstaff performs advanced laparoscopic surgery (a form of minimally invasive surgery). New technologies have significantly improved the treatment of many conditions. Most gynecologic surgeries can be performed using laparoscopic surgery, or what is commonly referred to as "laser surgery." Many of these procedures no longer require the large incision and prolonged recovery time of traditional surgery. Instead, small incisions can frequently be made to perform surgery, often on an outpatient basis, with less discomfort and frequently fewer risks.
 
On the Personal Side…

Dr. Biggerstaff grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, and graduated from Clemson University in 1968. He received his medical degree from The Medical University of South Carolina in 1972 and completed his residency training at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington in 1976. After ten years on Active Duty, he, along with his wife and two children, returned to the South and he began practice in Savannah in 1982. His interests outside of medicine and his family include fly-fishing, photography, cooking (with a preference for Northern Italian cuisine), and music.

He recently began fiddle lessons (Bluegrass) after he inherited a family violin.  He is also finishing another fiddle. The "apple of his eye" is his first grandchild, Emily, born to his daughter (Lise) and son-in-law (Christopher) in late 2004.  Dr. Biggerstaff has changed his professional schedule slightly to allow more time with Emily and the rest of his family and expects to continue treating endometriosis for another 10-15 years.
