Meet Dr. Pakiz.
Hello! I am Dr. Kristina Pakiz. I am privileged to have front-row seats into the lives of women and couples. As their stories unravel, the common thread is feeling unheard and dismissed. This propels them to search for a physician who thinks outside the box and our paths converge. Using the unique gifts I have been given, I am able to help women get their lives back and couples achieve their goal of becoming parents. Witnessing the profound transformation from pain to fullness of life confirms my purpose. I was created to be an instrument of healing.
I am a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist who specializes in a women’s health science called Natural Procreative Technology (NaProTechnology). I discovered this nuanced approach while working as a research assistant for Dr. Thomas W. Hilgers at the St. Paul VI Institute. I have had the invaluable experience of being mentored by Dr. Hilgers while spending over 13 years of my medical career serving patients at the St. Paul VI Institute.
I have chosen to set aside my obstetrical skills to focus on treating gynecologic diseases. With diverse clinical experience and surgical expertise, I hope to fulfill a need and alleviate suffering. By engaging patients, teaching medical professionals, and speaking within the community, I plan to educate and empower women and couples. I believe this is the key to raising the bar in women’s healthcare.
Our surgical approach is different because we don’t give up on your innate biology. Instead of removing damaged organs, we carefully repair them. Every aspect of the operation is deliberate- with preservation of fertility and prevention of scar tissue of paramount importance.
