Melisa Stout-Herring, PT/ATC
Melisa (Lisa) graduated from the University of Oklahoma Health and Sciences Center in 1986 with a degree in Physical Therapy. Following graduation, Lisa focused in the area of orthopedics and sports medicine at an out-patient orthopedic clinic that was associated with the University of Oklahoma. She was involved in the care and treatment of the University's athletes and area high school athletes as well as involved with treatment of general orthopedic patients. Her area of concentration with athletics and orthopedics continued and eventually she became a Certified Athletic Trainer. Lisa started practice as a staff therapist and progressed to the director. As the director, Lisa had the opportunity to expand her practice to include treatment in the area of Women's Health. In 1996 she received specialized training in the area of Women's Health, which required in-depth knowledge of orthopedics she had already established in her previous clinical history. This area quickly become her passion and to further expand her knowledge base, Lisa changed practice locations to a large OB/GYN clinic in Oklahoma City. This practice location allowed for an expansive educational environment including daily exposure to surgeries, physician procedures and evaluations, hospital/inpatient care, bone density scans, and many post surgical conditions associated with OB/GYN and Uro/GYN practices. This environment solidified her passion for Women's Health specialties and she continues to focus on this area of practice along with general orthopedics.
