Dr. Kirsten Sasaki is a gynecologic surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG). She is in private practice with Dr. Charles E. Miller and Dr. Molly McKenna in metropolitan Chicago.

After completing her residency at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, she was accepted as a Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Fellow through the AAGL, the world’s largest organization dedicated to minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.  

Under the mentorship of Dr. Miller, she completed her fellowship at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital (Park Ridge, IL). Over the course of her two-year fellowship, Dr. Sasaki received training from a diverse group of surgeons specializing in General Gynecology, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecologic Oncology and Urogynecology.  

Dr. Sasaki is an active contributor to the medical research community, publishing numerous articles in peer‐reviewed medical journals, authoring multiple book chapters and presenting at various national conferences.  

Her current research interests include decreasing and managing post‐operative pain, robotic‐assisted surgical teaching, bleeding rates after laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy and laparoscopic hysterectomy. 

Dr. Sasaki prides herself on providing excellent patient care, and has been awarded for her compassion in medicine. She treats her patients with the same empathy and regard as she would her friends- listening to their symptoms and then describing their diagnosis and treatment options in a way that is easy to understand. Dr. Sasaki employs visual aids, such as drawings and written summaries of discussions to help her patients feel more at ease.  

Additionally, Dr. Sasaki understands that surgery can be daunting and it is normal to feel nervous, but she calmly reassures her patients that she is not nervous because she performs surgery almost daily. 

Dr. Sasaki currently welcomes new patients in Naperville and Park Ridge for general gynecologic issues and exams, and is a sought after referral choice for minimally‐invasive gynecologic procedures.
