Biography

About Pelin Batur, MD

Pelin Batur MD has been at the Cleveland Clinic since 1998; she works in the Department of Subspecialty Care for Women's Health, within the Ob/Gyn & Women's Health Institute. She is a Professor of Ob/Gyn & Reproductive Biology at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. Her practice is a referral resource for women with complex hormonal needs. Her areas of expertise include menopause, medically complex contraception (including menstrual migraine and menstrually associated neurologic conditions), osteoporosis, and sexual health. She has been integral to the creation of several programs within the Ob-Gyn department, including the Sexual Health Program as well as the Complex Contraception Clinic. She also serves as the hormone liaison for multidisciplinary programs in partnership with the Cancer Institute, including the Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer as well the Young Onset Colorectal Cancer Programs. The Specialty Women's Midlife Welcome Center can be reached at 216.444.8686 to schedule with a Women's Midlife Specialist.

Dr Batur graduated medical school from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (NEOMED), where she completed the accelerated, 6-year BS/MD track. She completed both her internal medicine residency and subspecialty fellowship training in women’s health at the Cleveland Clinic. The fellowship provided expertise in menopause, breast care, osteoporosis, contraception, hormonal headaches, medical genetics, general gynecology, urology, preventative cardiology and endocrinology. After 15 years of balancing an internal medicine and consultative women’s health practice, she has transitioned to a purely women's health consultative practice, focused on the care of women with medically complex situations, such as after cancer treatment, organ transplant, or in those who carry genetic conditions which increase cancer risk. She splits her time between Cleveland Clinic Main Campus and the Strongsville Family Health and Surgery Center.

She is actively involved in the education of medical trainees and staff physicians, and has held several educational leadership positions throughout her career. She has published more than 100 book chapters, articles, abstracts, policy statements, and educational curricula on a variety of women’s health topics. She lectures nationally to general medicine, endocrinology and gynecology specialists, and works closely with multiple national medical organizations to advance women’s health care and education. She is the Deputy Editor of the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, a medical journal that is distributed to over 100,000 internists, cardiologists and endocrinologists across the US and internationally.

On her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and connecting with nature.

Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Dr. Batur was personable, focused on me (rather than her computer), and really took the time to listen to my concerns. She provided clear, thorough information to me and discussed research and data to support her recommendations regarding my health concerns.

Reviewed on May 29, 2024

It took many, many months to get an appointment to see Dr. Batur, but based on the bio's of the physicians available, she was the one I wanted to see. My appointment was moved up one month because I was on a waiting list, but it was still many months from the time I called for an appointment. My guess is that Dr. Batur is under pressure to see as many patients as possible, and yet there was no evidence of that during our appointment; she took her time and made sure my questions were answered and that I had the information I needed to implement our plan.

Reviewed on May 2, 2024

It was challenging to schedule an appointment with Dr Batur for a second opinion as she was booked out. But, it was worth the wait as she took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns about my osteopenia diagnosis last August.

All outstanding, but I wouldn't expect anything less with Dr. Batur. She's available, reliable, empathetic, and ready to hear a patients concerns to hopefully point them in the right direction.
