About Pelin Batur, MD

Pelin Batur MD has been at the Cleveland Clinic since 1998; she works in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Subspecialized Women's Health.  Dr Batur graduated medical school from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (NEOMED), where she completed the accelerated, 6-year BS/MD track. After her internal medicine residency training, she also completed specialty 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.  Her specialty interests include menopausal care, contraception, bone health, menstrual migraine, sexual concerns, as well as overall preventative women’s health. She has partnered with the Taussig Cancer Institute to develop a comprehensive Female Sexual Function program for cancer survivors. 

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 50 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. After 15 years of balancing a primary care and consultative women’s health practice, she has transitioned to a purely women’s health practice in efforts to be more accessible to those in need of specialized women’s health services. She splits her time between Cleveland Clinic Main Campus and the Strongsville Family Health and Surgery Center.

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. 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.

As of 2/20/2022, Dr. Batur has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.
