About Dr. Andrea Pezzella
Dr. Pezzella earned her medical degree at St. Louis University School of Medicine and completed her residency training at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Conn. She is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology with advanced training in urogynecology and pelvic floor reconstructive surgery.
In 2000, she joined the Fallon Clinic in Worcester, Mass., and was instrumental in developing their urogynecology program. Dr. Pezzella served as co-founder and director for seven years before relocating to a private practice in Columbia, S.C. During that time, she continued to pursue advanced training on surgical techniques for pelvic floor reconstruction and urinary incontinence. Since establishing her practice, she has performed more than 400 such surgical procedures, which up until then had not been readily available in the Columbia area.
With 10 years of experience managing and treating urinary incontinence and female pelvic disorders, Dr. Pezzella is committed to building Southern Urogynecology to effectively address these issues and best serve the women and referring physicians in this region.
Dr. Andrea Pezzella is married to Vince Vismara, MD, a local cardiologist in the Columbia area and has two children: Isabella, 10 and Luke, 7.
