Additional information


My name is Leslie A. Appiah; I joined UK HealthCare as a board-certified gynecologist with expertise in oncofertility and fellowship training in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. I bring six years of experience from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where I served as director of oncofertility and fellowship director of pediatric and adolescent gynecology.

I serve as Director of Oncofertility at UK and Norton Healthcare, where I work closely with subspecialists in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, at the Whitney-Hendrickson Women’s Cancer Facility, the Markey Cancer Center and the pediatric oncology team at Kentucky Children’s Hospital. My team and I will collaborate to preserve the fertility and reproductive health of pediatric, adolescent and adult cancer and blood disorders patients of all genders.

I attended medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. I completed a residency in OB-GYN at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and a clinical fellowship in pediatric and adolescent gynecology at Texas Children’s Hospital. I have received several teaching awards including the Johns Hopkins Excellence in Teaching Award. My research interests include ovarian tissue cryopreservation, ovarian function post-chemotherapy and radiation, ovarian masses, endometriosis and congenital anomalies of the reproductive tract.
