Tawsufe Majid, M.D.
Dr. Majid is accepting patients with routine pregnancy cases to those with more high risk issues including diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and others. He also has a special interest in the gynecological needs of women of all ages, providing such advanced surgical procedures for pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic reconstructions, treatment for urinary incontinence and bladder dysfunctions, infertility, and others. Among the specialized surgical procedures he performs are laparoscopic minimally invasive procedures that allow patients to return to their normal lives quicker and with less discomfort, such as laparoscopic hysterectomies.
Dr. Majid obtained his medical degree from Government Medical College Srinagar, Kashmir, India. He completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology from the well-respected Hurley Medical Center/Michigan State University-College of Human Medicine in Flint, Michigan where he also served as Chief Resident. Dr. Majid also underwent part of his residency training in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery/Urogynecology at Women & Infants Hospital at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
The physician currently holds Junior Fellow status with the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG). He is also trained in Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Gynecology and is enthusiastic about performing Liposuction, Abdominoplasty, Vaginoplasty, Vaginal Rejuvenation, Labiaplasty, and other similar services.
Dr. Majid's passion for the medical profession comes from a deep rooted family tradition, as his father, uncles, and aunts are also physicians. His wife Saima Ashraf is also completing an obstetrics and gynecology residency program in Michigan and hopes to join him and the team at Lake Erie Regional Health System of New York here in October. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter Ayat Tawsufe Majid.
