Dr. Manley brings to My Advocates more than 20 years experience in the medical profession. As a board-certified OB/GYN with well over 2,000 deliveries, he is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of obstetrics. His specialty training was at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC), which included a four-month rotation of high risk obstetrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Following successful completion of his residency, he served as a faculty instructor at GBMC, as well as maintaining a private practice. In 1996, he left this practice to become the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Baltimore for the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (the physician group of Kaiser Permanente). In addition to serving as OB/GYN Chief, in 2002, he also took on the role of Area Medical Director.
In addition to his extensive obstetrical experience, Dr. Manley also had a particular interest in gynecologic surgery. His specialty was in the area of minimally invasive procedures. He was the first person at GBMC to perform a laparoscopic supra cervical hysterectomy, as was he the first to perform incontinence surgery utilizing a tension free vaginal tape. Both procedures allowed the patient to go home the day of surgery with only a one to two week recovery. He has lectured to physicians nationwide about these innovative techniques.
Throughout his medical career, Dr. Manley has served on a number of committees including; the Obstetrical Advisory Committee at GBMC, the Gynecology Advisory Committee at GBMC, the Obstetrical Quality Review Committee at Kaiser, to mention a few. He is a fellow of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Manley has extensive medical-legal experience, and has served as an expert witness many times in both deposition and trial. He has done this both from a plaintiff and defense perspective.
