Dr. Buettner has built a successful OB-GYN practice around the needs of women of all ages. She emphasizes individualized medical care, by getting to know the unique qualities of her patients. Among her obstetrical patients, Dr. Buettner takes into account not only the physical changes taking place but the emotional ones, too. She has great interest and expertise in high-risk pregnancies, including multiple births and advanced maternal age. For women with gynecologic challenges—from birth control to menopause—she is an advocate for disease prevention and optimal well-being. When problems do arise, Dr. Buettner is a skilled surgeon in traditional surgeries as well as minimally invasive surgeries. Virginia Women’s Center patients for whom surgery is necessary can benefit from Dr. Buettner’s training in using the daVinci® Surgical System for minimally invasive procedures.

Educated in both her native Germany and the U.S., Dr. Buettner has two medical degrees—M.D. and Dr. Med
