Dr. Litrel’s motto is “We understand science, we practice medicine and we believe in God.” Believing that the mind, body and soul are all connected, he treats his patients wholly. A urogynecological and female reconstructive cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Litrel is double board-certified in the subspecialty Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery and in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Litrel shares his unique philosophy that guides his patient care.

“I want to have always done my best, to have always been honest and to accomplish what God has put me on the planet to do. So many women suffer in silence with problems that come after childbirth, because their bodies are never the same. It’s wonderful to hear from my patients that they finally feel like themselves again after treatment. This makes me very happy — it is a privilege to help.

– Dr. Michael Litrel

Dr. Litrel trained for eight years at Emory University School of Medicine under the mentorship of multiple renowned surgeons, including John D. Thompson,  John Rock, Cullen Richardson, William Saye, Ira Horowitz, and Niall Galloway.

At the Institute of Gynecology, he studied female cosmetic plastic gynecology under the private tutelage of Professor Adam Ostrzenski, the discoverer of the G-spot.

During residency, Dr. Litrel studied minimally invasive reconstructive laparoscopic surgery at the Advanced Laparoscopic Training Center, and upon completion of his surgical training, he joined the highly respected surgeon Dr. James Cross in private practice in 1997. He worked under his mentorship for eight years until Dr. Cross’s retirement in 2005.

Dr. Litrel is in private practice, and is also a Clinical Professor at both Emory University School of Medicine and Medical College of Georgia. He trains doctors in the techniques he has developed in genitoplastic and pelviplastic surgery, with a book in progress documenting this area of his specialty. Certified by both the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) and the Cellular Medicine Association (CMA), Dr. Litrel is authorized to deliver the O-Shot®.

When Dr. Litrel is not practicing medicine, he enjoys volunteering in the community and spending time with his wife and their two sons.
