Dr. Shelley Kolton is a founding partner of Downtown Women OB/GYN and has been in practice since 1980. When repeat Caesarian sections were standard care she studied vaginal birth after Caesarian in her residency program and was among the first to perform VBACs in private practice in NYC, encouraging women to participate actively in their own prenatal care and delivery. As part of the movement of healthcare professionals in the 1980s, she insisted that women should understand their bodies and their healthcare needs and by doing so, would be educated enough to work collaboratively with their healthcare providers. She now practices gynecology holding a special interest in the treatment of menopause, aging and transgender medicine.
