Dr. Mellano has a passion for women’s health, specifically pelvic floor disorders and bladder dysfunction. She completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCLA, and during that time she had the opportunity to work with a team of physicians treating complex pelvic floor disorders in Uganda. This inspired her to pursue a fellowship at UCLA in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urology gynecology). Her primary interests include overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, fibroids, urinary tract and vaginal infections, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, minimally invasive surgery, and menopausal care.
