Robotic Surgery - Dr. Kathleen Heffron

Dr. Kathleen Heffron MD, FACOG

From age 12, Dr. Heffron knew that she wanted to be a doctor. She was interested in Pediatrics initially, but later switched to Obstetrics and Gynecology. She was attracted to the opportunity of helping women with their unique healthcare needs, as well as using her surgical skills. Today, she most appreciates helping her patients, whether that is by delivering a baby or by performing a surgery. The idea that The Women’s Health Group (TWHG) can genuinely make a difference in a patient’s life is ultimately why Dr. Heffron formed the practice in January of 1991.

Dr. Heffron graduated from Putnam City High School in Oklahoma City. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana. From there, she continued on to earn a medical degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and completed her residency through Louisiana State University Medical Center. Currently, Dr. Heffron serves on the Advisory Board of Trustees at Hillcrest Medical Center.

She is the former OB/GYN Section Chief at Hillcrest Medical Center and has served as chairman of the nursing liaison and Quality Assessment committee at St. John Medical Center. She is the managing partner for TWHG. She is a member of the Tulsa County Medical Society, the Oklahoma State Medical Association, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Dr. Heffron is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

On a personal level, Kathleen has been married for many years to a wonderful man, Mike Sherrill, who is the Technical Director of the Tulsa Opera. They have one daughter, Kati, who is currently a college student in Massachusetts. Kathleen, Mike and Kati love to travel. Kathleen is also an avid baseball fan. She collects vintage baseballs and baseball cards, and once went to a World Series. She also likes to cook, especially for large groups of friends and family.
