Kenneth I. Barron, M.D. is the medical director and founder of the Center for Advanced Gynecology. He grew up in Concord, Massachusetts before coming to Charlottesville in 1996 to attend the University of Virginia where he met his wife and fell in love with Charlottesville.

Dr. Barron and his wife returned to Massachusetts where they both attended medical school. After completing a four-year residency in obstetrics and gynecology Dr. Barron entered private practice in Fall River, Massachusetts. He later spent two years in Orlando, Florida completing an accredited American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists fellowship with a specific focus in chronic pelvic pain under the nationally recognized pelvic pain expert Georgine Lamvu, MD, MPH; current chairwoman of the International Pelvic Pain Society.

Additionally, Dr. Barron pursued a second fellowship in endometriosis surgery at the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta, Georgia under Dr. Ken Sinervo, MD, MS. Returning to Charlottesville to practice medicine and raise a family has been a dream come true for Dr. Barron! Opening his own practice has allowed him to tailor his practice to individual patient needs in a more comfortable environment and to offer patients the most current and effective treatments learned from advanced fellowship training.
