Dr. Sherry Neyman has provided care for the women of Central Texas since 1996 when she joined Renaissance Women’s Group. She focuses on convenient and compassionate well-woman care by providing easy access to services such as mammograms, bone density screening for osteoporosis, urodynamic testing for incontinence and lab work available onsite during a single visit. Patients can get all their yearly screenings, including blood work, done at one time in one place.
Dr. Neyman customizes care as patients move through different phases in life. She enjoys working with her patients as they transition through the teen years, childbearing, middle age and beyond. Dr. Neyman transitioned her practice to focus on gynecology exclusively in 2013. One aspect of her practice that she particularly enjoys is providing preconception counseling and fertility testing. “Since I personally did fertility treatments, I understand how stressful this can be and love to help my patients with advice from someone who has ‘been there.’”
A very popular part of her growing practice includes evaluation, counseling and treatment for menopausal issues, including hormonal treatment options. “There are so many changes during this time of your life; you want a caregiver who is interested in learning about you and working with you to achieve the vitality and good health practices that will last a lifetime.”
Other services offered by her practice include birth control, HPV vaccination, medical and surgical treatment of incontinence, STD testing, evaluation of abnormal pap smears and treatment of menstrual disorders. Dr. Neyman is particularly interested in screening and treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). In-office surgeries provided by Dr. Neyman include hysteroscopy, endometrial ablation to eliminate heavy menses, Essure for permanent sterility, and LEEP for abnormal Pap smears.
Dr. Neyman is a strong advocate for using cutting-edge technology when medically necessary. She uses da Vinci® robotically assisted, minimally invasive surgery for endometriosis, uterine fibroids and hysterectomies. “This allows me to perform complex surgeries with minimum discomfort and tiny scars to meet the needs of the active women who don’t have weeks to recover from treatment,” she explains. She is a founding member of the Texas Institute of Robotic Surgery and one of the few gynecologists in the Austin area certified to perform the da Vinci® single-incision hysterectomy.
One particular aspect of Dr. Neyman’s work stirs personal passions. Both her mother and maternal grandmother died of breast cancer, and she feels a strong connection with breast cancer patients and survivors. “It is a special honor to care for these women,” she says. “I work closely with general surgeons and medical oncologists as part of a team approach during this time.” She also provides BRAC gene testing in her office to help women learn more about their risk factors and be proactive in breast cancer prevention.
Dr. Neyman takes pride in providing personal attention to patients. In addition to a relaxing, comfortable surrounding and friendly staff, she makes a point to greet each of her patients with a hug. “I want to let them know I genuinely care about them and their health.”
Dr. Neyman received her MD from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School where she was the outstanding senior student in obstetrics and gynecology. She completed her internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. She holds an MS in biology from Southern Methodist University and a BS in biology from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee.
After a chance encounter in 2004, Dr. Neyman found an opportunity to expand compassion and caregiving beyond her human patients. “Around Easter that year, I found an abandoned bunny by the side of the road, which led me to become involved with animal rescue.” A decade later, she cares for eight bossy yet adorable rabbits at her home. Additionally, she is president of House Rabbit Resource Network, an Austin-based non-profit which rescues rabbits and finds them forever homes.
