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.

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.

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 2/9/2023, 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.

Very courteous and kind with great explanations and consideration. Pelvic floor pain and estrogen withdrawal isn't something that I can acknowledge to many people publicly (a "headache" or "backache" is acceptable, not this) and even my husband has questioned "are you sure this isn't in your head and you need to see a shrink?" She's been very reassuring through it all, and my husband was present when I had this last visit with her. The pain/itch/burn/spasm isn't always gone, but her consideration/caring have truly made it bearable for me on a cognitive level
