Every obstetrician remembers the first baby he delivers. For Paul Daum, that first birth came in 1983. There have been thousands of tiny miracles since then. But for him the cry of those first healthy lungs still rings out, after three and a half decades. He went on to deliver the first baby at Methodist Charlton in 1986 and the first baby at Methodist Mansfield in 2006.
Within his Mansfield Miracles office, Dr. Daum emphasizes one-on-one care with a highly personal touch for women at every stage of life. He cares for both low-risk and high-risk pregnancies and offers minimally-invasive gynecologic surgery. Because no two patients are exactly alike, Dr. Daum does his best to slow things down and get to know each patient and never leave a question unanswered. His goal is to educate and empower each woman to be her own healthcare advocate. After all, who cares more about your body and your health than you do?
Throughout his three decades in solo practice, Dr. Daum has been at the forefront of many new technologies. He performed the first ever enodmetrial ablation, the first laporoscopically-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, the first hysteroscopic resection of uterine fibroids, and the first laparoscopic hysterectomy performed within the Methodist Hospital System. He educates other physicians, teaching and helping them develop their skills in these techniques.
