Published 12:44 pm Friday, September 9, 2022

Merit Health Medical Group, in Vicksburg, recently announced an addition to its medical staff, Dr. Niyazi Kilic, Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN).

Dr. Kilic joins us from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he completed his OB/GYN residency at St. Luke’s University Health Network. 

When asked why he decided to specialize in OB/GYN, Dr. Kilic said, “Obstetrics and gynecology amaze me because I get to provide prenatal care, including first trimester ultrasounds, do well-women care, perform procedures and counsel on all obstetrics and gynecological problems. I was impressed with Merit Health River Region’s robotic capabilities that will allow me to use high-end technology such as robotics, laparoscopy and hysteroscopy — a real broad scope of practice.”
