Dr. Mary Garces, PT, DPT earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Des Moines University in Des Moines, IA after obtaining her undergraduate degree at Marquette University, where she also played Division I volleyball. She became interested in learning more about the pelvic floor specialty after assisting in a research project during graduate school that studied different pelvic floor populations. Following graduation, Dr. Mary has worked in acute and outpatient physical therapy settings. This is where Dr. Mary felt inspired to dive even deeper into pelvic health. She saw so many of her own patients suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction with little guidance from other health care providers on how to restore better function and quality of life.
