Katherine Sampene, MD, is a UW Health obstetrician and gynecologist who cares for both pregnant and non-pregnant patients. She provides low-risk and high-risk pregnancy care and treats other reproductive conditions. Dr. Sampene also is a clinical associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

Dr. Sampene treats a wide variety of conditions related to the cervix, uterus and ovaries, including fibroids (non-cancerous uterine growths) and endometriosis (tissue growth outside of the uterus).

I really enjoy working with my patients and helping them figure out how to be the healthiest version of themselves.
