Dr. Rachael Smith was born and raised in Southern Oregon and completed her undergraduate education at Oregon State University. She attended Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. Her passion for surgery led her to complete a two-year fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at the University of Arizona where she remained as faculty for three additional years after fellowship as Associate Program Director of the fellowship.
Dr. Smith specializes in gynecologic conditions such as chronic pelvic pain, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, and cervical insufficiency. Her additional fellowship training in laparoscopy and robotics allows her to perform complex surgery with a minimally invasive approach to improve postoperative pain and facilitate recovery. Dr. Smith has a passion for caring for women with chronic pelvic pain and endometriosis, a disease that impacts 1 in 9 women. She has advanced training in the surgical management of endometriosis and uterine fibroids.
Outside of her commitment to women’s health, Dr. Smith is a dedicated mother to three young children and two dogs. She and her husband enjoy all things outdoors and she is excited to return to her home state and provide gynecologic care for the women of Central Oregon.
