One example of a chronic pain state is Myofascial pelvic pain – muscles and nerves that become dysfunctional after pregnancy or trauma. The condition can be overlooked for more classic diagnosis such as endometriosis. According to Dr. Sherlock, “The goal is a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. I present options to my patients so they can make the best choices for their care.”

Dr. Sherlock currently operates his Pelvic Pain Clinic every other week, and is joined there by Karen Connor, a specially trained physical therapist.

For complex gynecological problems, Dr. Sherlock says, “I’m also interested in co-managing or acting as a consultant to my fellow UH obstetrician-gynecologists, so they can maintain their relationships with patients.”

A member of the UH Elyria Medical Center medical staff since August 2015, Dr. Sherlock received his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in 2010 and completed a fellowship at UH Cleveland Medical Center in Pelvic Pain and Advanced Gynecologic Surgery in 2015. He is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Sherlock sees patients in Suite 218 of the Gates Medical Building on the UH Elyria Medical Center campus and also in Suite 203 at UH Avon Health Center.
