Monique Vaughan, MD, is a urogynecologist, which means she evaluates and treats patients with a variety of pelvic floor disorders. The most common pelvic floor issues are pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. However, Vaughan also treats patients with more complex pelvic floor disorders like urethral diverticula, genitourinary fistulae and many more. She provides both medical and surgical treatments and enjoys working with each patient to reach a mutual goal and a treatment pathway that will fit their needs and lifestyle.
Vaughan spent much of her childhood and early adulthood in north-central Florida. She received her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Florida before completing OB/GYN residency training at UVA. After a fellowship at Duke University, Vaughan returned to UVA as an assistant professor.
Vaughan met her husband Jeff in college at the University of Florida. They live in Scottsville with their two dogs and have a passion for travel. In her free time, she enjoys cycling, hiking, kayaking and reading.
