About Dr. Megan Shannon

Megan B. Shannon, MD joined Virginia Women’s Center in 2018 and practices at our Short Pump, Mechanicsville and Midlothian locations. As a Urogynecologist, Dr. Shannon has been specialty trained in medical and surgical options for women with pelvic floor disorders. She recognizes many women are hesitant to talk about pelvic pain, bladder, bowel or prolapse issues and as a result, they suffer in silence. Dr. Shannon wants her patients to know that these are very common issues women—of all ages—face. And, since many of these issues impact intimacy and the entire pelvic region, it’s important to get care as soon as possible.

Dr. Shannon received her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC and her Doctorate of Medicine from Wake Forest University as well. It was in medical school she realized that she felt most energized when taking care of women on her OBGYN rotation. She completed her internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Virginia Commonwealth University Health System. During residency, she spent extra time studying urogynecology and realized that this subspecialty allowed her to truly connect with patients about common issues with bladder, bowel, and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. She decided to dedicate her career to these women and completed her fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery at Loyola University Hospital in Maywood, IL.
