Dr. Pezzella relocated to Columbia, SC for a unique opportunity in her career.  With a dream and a passion to help women. She joined a private Women’s center where her goal was to bring Urogynecology specialty to the Columbia metropolitan area.

In the pursuit of her dream, in 2010, Dr. Pezzella founded Southern Urogynecology, The Center for Incontinence and Female Pelvic Medicine, a unique, state of the Art practice exclusively designed for women with female pelvic disorders and urinary issues. Southern Urogynecology is the first and only center of its kind in the Midlands to offer a variety of treatments for pelvic floor disorders such a pelvic organ prolapse and urinary symptoms including, urinary frequency, urgency, nighttime voiding and incomplete emptying as well as cosmetic gynecology.

Dr. Pezzella’s highest priority is improving the quality of life of her patients and believes that it is a privilege to help women live their lives without the burden of pelvic floor conditions as well as menopausal/post-menopausal symptoms.

Since the introduction of innovative laser technology for pelvic and vaginal health in 2015 with the advancement in cosmetic gynecology and the Mona Lisa CO2 laser as well as radiofrequency, it was a seamless transition to begin to offer laser therapies for both facial aesthetics and body contouring.

There was also a tremendous need for these women seeking hormonal balance, and ways to feel better in their daily lives, whether it be a sleep disorder, physical energy, and/or sexual desire, women were searching for help.

Her vision was to create an all-encompassing center with comprehensive care for the complete mature female and improve their quality of life. 

In August 2017, SU Wellness and Aesthetics was developed as a complementary division to the center.

Serving in a Women’s Health Care profession for over 20 years, she has dedicated herself to listening to women and how their female medical issues have such an impact on their quality of life. 

Besides running a busy practice, Dr. Pezzella spends her time with her husband, Vince Vismara, MD, and 2 teenagers, Luke (14) and Isabella (17).  She enjoys traveling with family and friends, exercise including kettlebells and spin, summers on Cape Cod, cooking and wine tasting.
