Miyazaki Enterprises - Surgery, Healthcare
Douglas W. Miyazaki, M.D., is a board certified OB/GYN and Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He completed both medical school and residency training at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Upon completion in 1994, he co-founded WomanCare Obstetrics and Gynecology, a private practice in Winston-Salem, NC. In addition to serving as senior partner of WomanCare Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Miyazaki supports Wake Forest Baptist Health’s OB-GYN Department as a clinical faculty member.
Innovation and problem solving have always been in the Miyazaki tradition. Dr. Miyazaki fondly recalls how his passion for surgery and entrepreneurial spirit were sparked while spending time at his father’s side.
“I am quite fortunate to have developed my interest in female pelvic anatomy very early. My father, Fred S. Miyazaki, M.D., is not only a world-renowned OB/GYN physician, but also a passionate and exemplary teacher, and my first inspiration. While home for breaks during college and later medical school,
Dad would take me to the anatomy and cadaver labs, and later the OR. I was privileged to watch him develop the practice of Saline Amnioinfusion for repetitive variable fetal heart rate decelerations for obstetrical deliveries. This procedure decreased the Cesarean section rate by 50% for that particular indication at Kaiser Hospital, Los Angeles at that time.”
