Michael Valley, MD, Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics

For Dr. Valley, practicing medicine is a privilege that he appreciates daily. "I have always been committed to working collaboratively with my patients to find solutions to their health care needs. My practice includes women of all ages for gynecologic and obstetric concerns." Special training and experience have allowed me to develop a specialty in Urogynecology, the practice of caring for women with bladder problems, prolapse (pelvic relaxation) and other pelvic concerns. As our population ages, more women will be in need of urogynecology services, some with complex problems. I find it rewarding to provide help to women who may have experienced a bladder or pelvic pain problem for years. Many women are searching for nonsurgical solutions to their pelvic problems, and I strive to offer state-of-the-art solutions, both surgical and nonsurgical. My special interests include caring for women with complex bladder and pelvic floor problems and those who may have had previous unsuccessful surgery. I have been honored to be recognized by peers in Minnesota Monthly magazine as a Top Doctor in Female Urology and Urogynecology. My wife, Danielle, and I are grateful for our twins, Elizabeth and William. And we all love the special most recent addition to our family—our dog, Millie. Our family enjoys sports activities, exercise and the outdoors, and we really enjoy family time at our cabin.
