About Dr. Alaniz

Dr. Veronica Alaniz specializes in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. She chose this specialty because she was drawn to the medical and surgical aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, as well as the continuity of care she provides adolescent patients as they transition into young women and adulthood. She is proud to be a part of a field that develops lifelong relationships between doctor and patient.

 
Her interests include congenital anomalies (conditions present at birth) of the reproductive tract, Mullerian anomalies, contraceptive and menstrual management for the medically complicated adolescent, differences of sex development (intersex) and management of ovarian cysts.

She completed her undergraduate degree at Stanford University and earned a Master of Public Health at the University of Southern California. In 2010, Dr. Alaniz received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and a fellowship in pediatric and adolescent gynecology at the University of Michigan.
