Good joins UF Health as female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery chief
Meadow Maze Good, D.O., FACOG, has joined the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville as an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology and chief of the division of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (formerly known as the division of urogynecology and pelvic reconstruction).
For Good, joining UF Health is a homecoming of sorts. She received her bachelor’s degree from UF’s main campus in Gainesville.
“I am a Floridian – and just as importantly a University of Florida alumni – and throughout my medical training have been focused on returning to Florida and dedicating my practice to improving the lives of the women of North Florida,” she said. “UF Health is a well-respected and patient-centered academic institution with great resources for top-notch clinical care and research.”
As chief of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, Good said her focus will be to build a comprehensive care program at UF Health Jacksonville for women experiencing pelvic floor disorders, offering a full range of vaginal, laparoscopic and da Vinci robot-assisted minimally invasive surgical treatment options.
“We are building a team of highly trained and skilled physicians, nurses and physical therapists to meet the needs of these patients with conditions that are often overlooked and not discussed, but are important to the women who have them,” she said. “We have the latest technology in our clinical setting to evaluate women for any pelvic floor disturbance and are ready to perform pelvic reconstruction using the best modality for the patient and her condition.”
Good received her medical degree from Midwestern University’s Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. She completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Parkland Hospital in Dallas. In addition, she completed a three-year fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at UT Southwestern and Parkland Hospital with some of the best-known leaders in the field of vaginal and minimally invasive pelvic reconstructive surgery. She is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
Good is an active member of numerous professional societies, including the American Urogynecologic Society, American College/Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American Medical Association.
Good has also been recognized and awarded for her excellence in teaching and mentorship. She is a well-respected researcher and has published many scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, including Obstetrics and Gynecology and American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the field of urogynecology.
“It was a privilege to work on research and take care of the diverse population that the medical center in Dallas served,” Good said. “Those experiences will help me as I transition to treat the diverse population at UF Health Jacksonville, concentrating on meeting the individual needs of each patient and having patients trust me with some of their most sensitive health issues.”
