“Kind and compassionate care to all women." —Dr. Kimberly Kraus

Dr. Kimberly Kraus has been working in the community for more than 20 years. Growing up in Middleburg Heights, Dr. Kraus did not stray far from home. She has been located at Southwest General Hospital since 1999. A mother of three, Dr. Kraus can relate to her patients. She was pregnant with twins during her first year in medical school and had preterm labor, so she has experienced many of the same issues her patients have.

In addition to caring for low-risk and high-risk pregnancies, Dr. Kraus is also a Biote bioidentical hormones provider (for both women and men). She performs in-office ablations for heavy periods and performs robotic surgery (minimally invasive surgery including hysterectomies). Patients also can get same-day 3D mammograms at the Premier Physicians office in Westlake.

A Trio of Specialty Services
Board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Kimberly Kraus not only helps deliver healthy babies but also focuses on women’s overall health. Here are three innovative treatments she offers:

  1. MonaLisa Touch: To help women with vaginal dryness, painful intercourse and recurrent vaginal infections, Dr. Kraus uses the MonaLisa Touch laser. This non-surgical laser therapy revitalizes the vagina by stimulating collagen, elastin and revascularization within the vaginal wall, helping to restore vaginal pH and lubrication.
  2. Biote Bioidentical Hormones: To help you feel better, hormone replacement therapy can improve memory fog, hot flashes and night sweats, and enhance libido, increase muscle strength and manage weight. The bioidentical hormone pellets are customized to each individual and placed subcutaneously in the body. Once placed under the skin, the pellets are absorbed into the body based on cardiac output and blood flow.
  3. Morpheus 8: Combining microneedling and radiofrequency, this treatment helps boost collagen and tighten skin. It directs energy toward the adipose fat that is notorious for creating jowls and bra rolls, so you can target areas to reduce fat on the body and diminish facial wrinkles, acne scarring, enlarged pores and irregular skin tone and texture. As an add-on treatment, they now offer Pro-Nax inhaled analgesia to minimize any discomfort or anxiety.

Choosing a doctor is personal. You want someone who makes you feel comfortable. And that is even more important for women looking for an obstetrician or gynecologist. Call for a consultation and see why so many other patients, including doctors and nurses, turn to Dr. Kraus for the best care.
