Kenneth Hatch, MD

Professor, Obstetrics and Gynecology

Dr. Kenneth Hatch is a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at The University of Arizona and Director of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. He is board-certified in gynecologic oncology and obstetrics and gynecology.

Dr. Hatch performs surgery for uterine prolapse and bladder problems. He is internationally known for his innovative surgical techniques. He performed the first radical laparoscopic hysterectomy for cervical cancer in 1994 and is among the few surgeons who treat earlstage cervical cancer by radical trachelectomy, thus allowing young women the potential for future fertility.

In 1992, Dr. Hatch was study chairman for the first laparoscopy trial in the US for cancer of the endometrium, a procedure now used worldwide for patients treated for gynecologic cancer. This leads to markedly reduced rate of blood transfusion, shorter hospital stays and faster return to full activity.
