Dr. Angela Stoehr, a OB/GYN based in Texas, is a trailblazer in pain management focused on helping her patients recover after many common women’s health procedures with limited to no opioid use. She knows firsthand the devastating impact the current opioid epidemic has had on millions of families across the country and has made it her mission to reduce the use of opioids in her practice. Dr. Stoehr is a member of The International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health, and the International Pelvic Pain Society, serving on its Patient Education Committee.
Always eager to contribute to the greater good in the public health sector, Dr. Stoehr has participated in medical missions around the globe, including the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Ghana. One of the central tenets of Dr. Stoehr’s lifework is reaching out, working with, and caring for patients. Outside the walls of her practice, she and her husband are busy, dedicated parents to their two wonderful children.
