Following medical school and residency at Stanford, Dr. Sutherland began private practice in Mt. View. In 1983, she cofounded Women Physicians Ob-Gyn Medical Group which set the standard in the community for Care of Women by Women.
She stopped delivering babies in 2010. She now focuses her full-time practice on health care for women of all ages. She has a special interest in gynecologic issues including pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts. She began using the daVinci robot in 2009 and now does almost all of her laparoscopies, myomectomies, and hysterectomies using that minimally invasive technique.
In 1995, she was diagnosed with an early and treatable breast cancer. Since that time, she has been actively involved with cancer prevention, early diagnosis and treatment. She is active in cancer volunteer organizations, including Relay For Life of Mountain View and PINCC.
She is married with 2 grown daughters who are pursuing careers in international business and international law.
