The story behind ASC
In 1997, after completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas, Dr. Aguirre returned to Colorado to complete a fellowship in urogynecology and reconstructive pelvic surgery. This two year fellowship was under the training of Dr. G. Willy Davila at the Colorado Gynecology and Continence Center, Colorado’s first urogynecology practice and Fellowship Training Center. In 1999 Dr. Aguirre took over the practice as medical director renaming it Urogynecology Associates of Colorado.
While listening to the overwhelming concerns of his patients over the years, it became apparent to Dr. Aguirre that they were concerned about much more than just the functional aspect of their vaginal problems. Patients were also concerned about the appearance of their vagina. Dr. Aguirre, who is qualified to address both women’s functional and aesthetic concerns, realized that he could help these women. With the addition of cosmetic gynecological services, the practice was renamed Pelvic Specialty Care – The Center for Female Pelvic Medicine. The new name illustrated the fact that the practice had more to offer than just urogynecologic treatments and procedures.
In the years following, Dr. Aguirre and his team were constantly adding new services to better meet the needs of their patients, including additional aesthetic vaginal surgery procedures, in-office body contouring and dermal aesthetics. In 2009, Dr. Aguirre and his team updated the practice name to better reflect the wide range of services provided for women. With that, Aguirre Specialty Care – Pelvic Surgery and Intimate Aesthetics, The Center for Female Pelvic Medicine and Cosmetic Surgery, was born.
ASC is a center of excellence for women providing everything from urogynecologic procedures to aesthetic body contouring. Dr. Aguirre and his team strive to always have the answer to the question, “What can you do about this?”. The practice is constantly growing and ever changing to adapt to the needs of their patients.
In 2019, Dr. Aguirre completed the development of a 10,000 square foot medical office building in Parker, Colorado, 20 miles south of downtown Denver. This building is the new home for his medical practice, Aguirre Specialty Care and a multispecialty ambulatory surgical center – Milestone Surgery Center – which specializes in women’s surgical services.
“Milestone Surgery Center is the culmination of a 20-year dream of developing an ambulatory surgical center dedicated to women’s functional and aesthetic needs. A place where surgeons can take patients with gynecologic needs who may also desire reconstructive and cosmetic surgery performed in one surgery setting. Such a center is the first of its kind in Colorado and requires the participation of several specialties to include: Gynecology, Urology, Colorectal, Plastics, General Surgery, and Pain Management.”
