Lauren Kauvar, MD

Obstetrician and Gynecologist

About Dr. Kauvar

Dr. Lauren Kauvar is a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist with a passion for building caring, long-term relationships with her patients. She initially wanted to go into sports medicine, but was drawn to OB/GYN because it gave her the opportunity, in her words, “to be a part of all stages of my patients’ lives, from seeing them at the clinic for a checkup to helping deliver a baby or performing surgery.”

Her patients appreciate that she takes the time to get to know them, answer their questions, and understand their needs, so that she can provide truly individualized care. She has particular interests in managing high-risk pregnancies and performing minimally invasive surgery for conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain, and ovarian cysts. The benefits of a minimally invasive approach include shorter hospital stays, decreased postoperative pain, better cosmetic results, and a more rapid return to normal activities.

Dr. Kauvar is a third-generation native of Denver. After completing her residency at Hofstra University’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York, she returned home and joined Mile High OB/GYN because of the practice’s long-standing roots in the community. She has a personal connection, as well—the late Dr. Stan Goodman, founder of Mile High OB/GYN, delivered her. She loves that the team of doctors at Mile High work closely together to provide coordinated care. She says, “As a group we work very well together. We always have someone available. We communicate about all our patients so that each one gets the care they need.” She is helping to train the next generation of great physicians, as well, by teaching medical students and residents at Rose Medical Center and on rotation at the practice.

I try to get to know people, to understand where they are coming from, so that I can individualize the care I provide.

Personal Interests

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Kauvar stays active in the great outdoors by skiing in the winter and playing golf in the summer. She has completed five triathlons and is training for her next one.
