Biography

Dr. LaCombe started her medical career as a receptionist, phlebotomist and then medical assistant in a hospital in Florida while pursuing her undergraduate pre-medical degree. She quickly realized female patients were having negative experiences with their health care and not always treated specifically for their needs as women. As a result, she vowed to be a staunch advocate for women’s health, to always listen to her patients and empower them to participate in their health care decisions. Dr. LaCombe is committed to providing a compassionate, comfortable and relaxed environment for patients to discuss all aspects of their pelvic and sexual health and well-being.

Internationally, Dr. LaCombe has travelled to Ecuador, Bolivia, Honduras, Guatemala and Bandladesh to address female pelvic health disparities by participating in gynecologic surgical medical missions. She is currently affiliated with an organization called A Stitch in Time (astitchintime.org).

Dr. LaCombe’s personal interests include sailing, paddle boarding, running, acoustic bass, yoga, traveling and spending time with her husband and two children.

Practice Philosophy

No two patients are alike, and my goal is that each patient’s treatment plan reflects a focus on individualized and compassionate care. From initial consultation through diagnosis to treatment, I am committed to making each patient’s experience as comfortable and effective as possible. I strive to provide diagnostic and therapeutic options tailored to each woman’s concerns and desired outcomes, and to enable and empower women to participate in fully informed decisions about their care.

Clinical Interest

Dr. LaCombe's clinical interests include treating pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and anal incontinence, obstetrical and complex fistulas, pelvic floor disorders, and bladder pain syndromes. Dr. LaCombe offers a wide variety of non-surgical and surgical treatment options including pelvic floor muscle rehabilitation, percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation, medications, office urethral bulking injections, neurosacral modulation, and surgery. Dr. LaCombe routinely utilizes minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic, laparoscopic and vaginal approaches for the correction of female pelvic disorders.  Minimally invasive surgical approaches result in less post-operative pain, less blood loss, decreased risk of infection, less scarring, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery time.
