Ruth O. Arumala, DO, MPH, FACOG, NCMP
As I completed my MPH, I simultaneously completed a Health Administration Certificate focused Emergency Preparedness at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. After completing both programs at the top of my class, I matriculated into Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine on an academic scholarship. Here I built a solid academic foundation that prepared me to be a caring physician that considers the whole patient including the body, soul & spirit.
During my 2nd year of medical school, one of the most pivotal events of my life occurred. My
brother, Samuel O. Arumala, passed away while admitted for care in a hospital. This devastating event shaped my empathy for patients in a way that is indescribable. As I recovered from this tragedy, I spent a year in Gaborone, Botswana doing dermatology & telemedicine research.
After completing medical school & OB GYN residency, I completed reproductive surgery training in Oklahoma. This training focused on the care of women with fibroids.
With the skills I acquired, I opened my 1st practice in Mansfield, Tx. Over the two years in solo private practice, I served on the executive committee at Texas Health Mansfield and taught as an assistant professor at Fort Worth Medical School. I earned the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology board certification, the North American Menopause Society certification, & Robotic Surgery certification
I was commended for my work by receiving 13 awards including 2020 & 2022 White Dress Project Blossom award for Fibroid education & advocacy, 2020 National Minority Quality Forum’s 40 Under 40 Leaders in Minority Health, 2020, 2021 & 2022 Fort Worth Magazine “Top Docs” Tarrant County, Ob-Gyn, 2020, 2021 & 2022, Texas Super Doctors Rising Stars, and 2020 & 2021 Women in Medicine’s “Top ObGyn” Fort Worth.
After two years in private practice, I closed my practice and headed to Bellevue, Washington. I was one of a few gynecologists in the country to be selected to complete a rigorous American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery dual accredited facial & general cosmetic surgery fellowship.
During this hands-on intense training, I learned the science and art of restoring the body to aesthetically pleasing forms. This has been one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of my practice because I believe that health and wellbeing is from outside in and inside out.
