Oralee Ekberg, DO
Dr. Oralee Ekberg lives in Brighton and is excited to once again work in Brighton. She graduated from medical school in Kansas City, Missouri and performed her obstetrics and gynecology residency in Toledo, Ohio. After her residency she worked in Brighton for a few years, but left the general OB/GYN practice to specialize in gynecologic surgery. Upon finishing a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic and hysterscopic surgery, she has spent the past 10 years specializing in gyn surgery in Denver.
“I am excited to return to my roots delivering babies, in addition to continuing to provide all stages of general gynecological care and minimally invasive surgeries,” she explains.
Oralee performs annual well woman exams, as well as treats abnormal pap smears, sexually transmitted infections, provides birth control options, helps control heavy or painful menses, fibroids, endometriosis, painful intercourse, irregular menses, ovarian issues, urinary incontinence and pelvic prolapse. In addition, she helps women with menopausal concerns and has an interest in hormone replacement therapy as well as other treatment options.
“My role is to listen, complete a thorough exam, and ask questions to help determine the best treatment options,” she says. “I want to make sure patients understanding everything and not be afraid to ask questions. I also believe it’s important to discuss treatment options, pros and cons of each, and then decide together what treatment will have the best outcome.”
She performs most surgeries with a laparoscopic, hysteroscopic or vaginal approach to not only have an excellent surgical outcome, but also an easier and quicker recovery. As a gyn surgeon, she performs hysterectomies, myomectomies, endometrial ablations, excision of endometriosis, pelvic organ prolapse surgery, and urinary stress incontinence surgery with little to no time in the hospital.
Oralee has two children and most of her free time is spent being a busy Mom attending her children's practices and sporting events at Brighton High School. She loves to travel, cook, and ride her motorcycle.
