Novant Health

SALISBURY — Novant Health Pelvic Health Center, a specialty clinic for complex gynecologic disorders, has opened at 1904 Jake Alexander Blvd. W., Suite 303.

The office is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays.

Dr. Jed Schortz is a specialist in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery who can evaluate, diagnose and treat a range of gynecological conditions.

Schortz specializes in treating complex gynecologic disorders and painful pelvic conditions such as fibroids, endometriosis, abdominal, vaginal and pelvic pain, irregular vaginal bleeding, as well as interstitial cystitis and adenomyosis.

Women of all ages who are affected by these and other pelvic disorders can receive treatment at the center.

Schortz completed an internship in general surgery at Albany Medical Center in Albany, New York, followed by a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, where he received an award recognizing a resident sponsored by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists.

He also received the Resident Research Award with his focus being research in minimally invasive surgery.

He completed fellowship training in minimally invasive gynecological surgery and chronic pelvic pain at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in New York. There, he performed hundreds of complex laparoscopic, robotic and hysteroscopic gynecologic surgeries, as well as successfully treated many women with chronic pelvic pain conditions.

The Pelvic Health Center is a satellite of a similar Novant center in Winston-Salem. Schortz works closely with the multidisciplinary team of providers at the Winston-Salem location that includes urologists, colorectal surgeons, gynecologists and physical therapists.
