Dr. Marina Straszak-Suri


Dr. Straszak-Suri is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa and a member of the generalist division of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Ottawa Hospital. She practices office and surgical gynecology.

Dr. Straszak-Suri completed her specialty training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Ottawa in 1991 and then did one year of Fellowship in Perinatology and Ultrasound at the Ottawa General Hospital.

She started practice in general obstetrics and gynecology at the Riveside Hospital of Ottawa. With amalgamation of the Ottawa Hospital in 1999 she decided to restrict her practice to gynecology and moved her major surgical practice to the Ottawa Hospitals Civic campus.

She continues to practice general gynecology at her office in Centrepointe and performs surgery at the Civic and Riverside campuses of the Ottawa Hospital.

She also does colposcopy at the Shirley Greenberg Womens Health Centre and is director of Sound Diagnosis, a private OBGYN ultrasound facility.

In 2000 she was awarded a Millenium Fellowship by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada to further her training in Female Sexual Dysfunction and continues to see patients with this problem in her practice.
