Celebration Obstetrics and Gynecology Welcomes Dr. Charlene Okomski, DO, FACOG
Dr. Charlene Okomski, DO, was born in Philadelphia, PA and relocated with her family at the age of 14 to Delran, NJ. She is an Obstetrics and Gynecology specialist with over 34 years of experience in the medical field. She earned her Bachelor degree from the University of Dayton in 1982. She graduated from the University Health Sciences College of Medicine, Kansas City, MO in 1987. As an intern at the Community Hospital of Lancaster, she was honored as the Intern of the Year in both Ob/Gyn and General Surgery. Following her residency at Community Hospital of Lancaster, she became a partner at the Ob/Gyn Associates of Dover in Dover, Delaware. During her time at Ob/Gyn Associates, Dr. Okomski enjoyed developing her medical skills and business skills. Feeling the need for sunshine and warmer weather, she relocated to Charlotte County, Florida and established her own Ob/Gyn medical practice.
During her years working in the Bayfront Medical Health Care system, she received many honors and served on the Board of Directors for the Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies (C.A.R.E.) and the Bayfront Port Charlotte Medical Center Board of Trustees. Dr. Okomski is passionate about helping others. She was awarded the Bon Secours St. Joseph Hospital Physician of the Year and ranked first in Ob/Gyn Patient Satisfaction at the Bayfront Port Charlotte Medical Center.
Being such an experienced surgeon has led Dr. Okomski to advances in surgery using the DaVinci Surgical System. At first, she was skeptical of this system, but she changed her opinion when she realized that visualization was much better with the 3D view. The robotic hands can perform smaller incisions, and there is less blood loss. The outcomes for her procedures are much better when using the robotics. There is a quicker recovery, and the patient can go home the same day. “In my opinion, the robotics have reduced complications. Robotic surgery continues to be something that I am personally very excited about. It is the most useful way to treat patients for a variety of conditions and surgeries including hysterectomies, endometriosis, fibroid tumors, and prolapse.” -Dr Okomski
