Trent Rice M.D.
Dr. Trent Rice joined the Women’s Center in the fall of 2014. He is a fellowship trained Urogynecologist and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists.
Dr. Rice grew up in Winder, GA. He attended college at the University of Georgia where he earned a degree in Biochemistry and Microbiology. He then attended the Medical College of Georgia and subsequently moved to New York City for his general OBGYN residency training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx. Most recently, he attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN where he completed his fellowship training in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (Urogynecology). It’s safe to say that he’s happy to have come full circle and made it back to the North Georgia area.
Dr. Rice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic floor disorders, such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary/fecal incontinence, and mesh complications. He offers a wide array of conservative and surgical treatment options to his patients. He is experienced both in traditional and minimally invasive surgical repairs. His fellowship training was unique in that it was a combined Urogynecology and Female Urology program, one of the few in the nation. He has had several research publications published in his field’s leading journals. When asked why he became a Urogynecologist, he states the specialty involves very functional surgery with large quality of life impact. Simply put it allows me to change the lives of women who are fearful of social embarrassment from their pelvic floor disorders and give them a life back.
Outside of doctoring, he has special interests in music. He was a member of a local Athens rock band for many years and continues to enjoy composing and recording music. Recently he had an original song, Hickory Hollow played on Nashville radio. He currently resides in Decatur and regularly performs at local music venues.
His wife, Sarah, is also a doctor. She works at Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital as a Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician. They have a daughter, Addison, who inspires them daily and is just plain sweet and happy.
