Welcome to Advanced Women’s Healthcare in Dallas, Texas
We appreciate you as a patient and are dedicated to providing you compassionate and quality healthcare here in Dallas, TX. Specializing in Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB/GYN), our physicians Dr. Amy Sigman, Dr. Amie Napier, Dr. Michelle Heintges, and Dr. Heidi Harms are here to serve you.
Dr. Amy Sigman
O Canada – that’s where Dr. Amy Sigman’s story begins. She was born in Montreal and lived there until she was nine years old when her family immigrated to Dallas. And while she cherishes her Canadian roots, she proudly considers Dallas her home and became an American citizen in 2003. At family gatherings, the rivalry between her U.S. family and extended Canadian family remains a good-natured debate even years later.
Dr. Amie Napier
Dr. Amie Napier wasn’t born in Texas but got here as soon as she could. She was born into a military family who lived in Ogden, UT and shortly after her birth, they moved to Dallas. And there began her path as a life-long resident of the DFW area. Her interest in medicine began when she worked as a veterinary assistant in high school. What she learned and experienced in that job led to her ambition of becoming a doctor.
Dr. Michelle Heintges
Dr. Michelle Heintges is a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She grew up in Hartshorne, Oklahoma and is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma. Her father’s long illness led her to medicine, and she subsequently moved to Dallas and graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. Following medical school graduation, Dr. Heintges entered her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the prestigious Parkland Hospital, where she served as one of the Chief Residents in her final year. She has been in private practice at Medical City Dallas since 2003. Dr. Heintges’ has a special interest in pelvic floor reconstruction, menopause and adolescent medicine.
Dr. Heidi Harms
Dr. Heidi Harms was inspired by her grandfather to study medicine, who was a physician that she thought the world of and aspired to be like. Having grown up in Great Falls, Montana, Dr. Harms came south to Texas to study at Baylor University in Waco where she worked in molecular biology and cancer research for several years prior to moving on to attend the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Upon completion of her coursework, she returned to Texas for her residency at Parkland Memorial Hospital where she served as a chief resident in her final year.

What is a Pelvic Floor? The pelvic floor is made up of muscles that are located at the bottom of your pelvis. These voluntary muscles support your bladder and other organs, as well as help control urination, defecation, and intercourse. These muscles can weaken or overly tighten due to childbirth, age, disuse, or disease. This weakening or over tightening can lead to stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overactive bladder, painful urination or intercourse, and interstitial cystitis. Advanced Women’s Healthcare offers a personalized treatment plan to help women retrain their pelvic floor. What are the benefits? Many patients have been able to completely stop taking medications for bladder issues after retraining these pelvic floor muscles through our program. No medications are required to aid in this process as the entire treatment plan is muscle-based. Relearning how to control the pelvic floors muscles has many positive effects for the female body and can eliminate issues and pain as the muscles strengthen and better control of the muscles is gained. What happens at an appointment? After completion of a brief questionnaire and consultation, patients will begin the first appointment with our Prometheus-trained Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation Nurse, Caroline. During the treatment they learn to work […]
