Meet Dr. Timothy N. Cowthorn, of Greystone OB/Gyn located in Conyers and Covington Georgia

As a child, I liked TV shows about doctors and different medical situations. My parents always pushed me and my brothers and sister to be the best we could be, so when I followed my dream of going to medical school, they were very supportive. My father is a hair stylist, and my mother is an administrative assistant in my hometown, Shreveport, Louisiana. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today.

In medical school, during my family practice rotation in rural Texas, I worked with a doctor who had a patient in labor. Delivering the baby was thrilling! It led me into a career in obstetrics and gynecology. I enjoy bringing new life into the world and sharing in happy times with the parents.

My areas of clinical interest include high-risk obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery - which is also known as laparoscopy. I use da Vinci robot for hysterectomies, removal of fibroid tumors, and other cases. The beauty is that instead of making a large open incision to do surgery, I can make a few small incisions and then use a tiny camera and long, thin surgical instrument. The benefits for patients can include less pain, a shorter hospital stay and quicker return to normal daily activities - not to mention better health outcomes.

As a doctor of osteopathic medicine, I take a holistic approach. That means looking at the whole person when making a diagnosis and determining treatment. I also teach patients how to take responsibility for their health and well-being. It's very rewarding to help them improve their lives.

Dr. Cowthorn is the Treasurer/Secretary for the medical staff at Rockdale Medical Center and serves on the Medical Executive Committee.
