Melius, Schurr & Cardwell located their current partnership in the Madison suburb of Fitchburg in 2001 with a mission of providing excellent, individualized women's health care with a patient-centered focus in a friendly and confidential setting. Our new clinic facility in Fitchburg was completed in October of 2005, and offers more expansive exam and procedure rooms. Our commitment to patient education and comfort resulted in the design of a second floor loft perfect for education classes of all types.

Our practice emphasizes professional, personalized obstetrics and gynecology care and general health care for women. As board-certified physicians in obstetrics, gynecology and internal medicine, we utilize the latest research and technologies in providing you the best Madison has to offer including non-surgical techniques, minimally invasive surgery, and on-site 4-D ultrasound and phlebotomy services to evaluate your pregnancy, gynecological concern or other needs.
