Dr. Melinda Miller-Thrasher, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Cosmetic Surgery
Board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Melinda Miller-Thrasher, MD, has over 25 years of experience in her field. She proudly serves patients at Innovative Women's HealthCare Solutions in Smyrna and Atlanta, Georgia. Her practice has grown to include The Fibroid and Reproductive Care Center, Innovative Diagnostics, Innovative Surgical Arts, and Innovative Concierge Services.
Dr. Miller-Thrasher was born and raised in Harlem and is one of seven brothers and sisters. She credits her mother, her grandmother, and the Lord for her perseverance, and her older brothers’ guidance in her decision to pursue medicine. She chose to pursue OB/GYN so she could have an early impact on young women’s health and a life-long impact on the children they bear.
She studied at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, graduating with a major in biology and a minor in nutritional sciences before completing her residency training at New York University. She was recruited to join the faculty of Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, as an assistant professor, where she taught and trained students and residents. Although no longer a full-time faculty member, she continues her passion for teaching by mentoring pre-med students, as well as Emory University School of Medicine medical students and residents. She actively mentors students through the Atlanta Medical Association, PAUSE Program, Morehouse and Spelman pre-health programs.
Dr. Miller-Thrasher was competitively selected to receive advanced training in a one-year clinical fellowship through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery at the nationally-acclaimed and busiest cosmetic surgery practice in the country, Southern Surgical Arts. During her fellowship training, she focused specifically on all aspects of general cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures of the face, body, and breast. She assisted in the care of thousands of women and took part in more than 1,000 cosmetic surgical procedures of the face, neck, breast, and body.
Her years of gynecologic surgery experience, along with her cutting-edge formal clinical fellowship training in cosmetic surgery and award-winning bedside manner, make her uniquely qualified to artfully transform her patients into a more beautiful version of their natural selves.
Her inclusion in Essence magazine’s feature on “Gynecologists You Love,” as well as being a Patient’s Choice Award recipient, serves as an abbreviated testament to the care she provides. Dr. Miller-Thrasher has been recognized by her colleagues as one of Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta Magazine each year since 2009.
Over the years, Dr. Miller-Thrasher has aspired to reach new personal milestones involving her love of physical fitness and long-distance running. She considers running the New York City Marathon one of her greatest achievements. She brings this emphasis on nutrition and fitness to her practice, along with her medical knowledge to motivate, educate, and empower women.
Dr. Miller-Thrasher is on staff at Piedmont Hospital and Emory University Hospital, where she serves as a clinical instructor of obstetrics and gynecology. She is happily married and the mother of five children.
