Frances Grimstad | Publications

I believe that every individual deserves a safe clinical space to achieve their optimal gynecologic, reproductive and sexual health. Reproductive health and the decisions that surround it are deeply personal and as unique as each individual. I am passionate about providing patient centered care for the spectrum of conditions seen in gynecology.

I have a specific expertise in transgender and intersex/differences in sex development reproductive health.

My clinical and research interests center around optimizing reproductive health outcomes for both populations including hormonal and menstrual management, sexual health, surgical care, and family planning.
