About Daphne LaCoursiere, MD

Yvette LaCoursiere, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN. She provides comprehensive care to women, including maternity care, well-woman care, and treatment for common gynecological issues such as abnormal Pap smears, fibroids, ovarian cysts, abnormal bleeding, or gynecological infections.

Dr. LaCoursiere's expertise is in caring for patients with maternal obesity. She began the Maternal Weight and Wellness Program at UC San Diego Health. The program, one of only a few in the nation, specializes in providing complete, compassionate care for overweight women before, during, and after pregnancy. It serves women who have had bariatric (weight loss) surgery or who have a BMI of 35 or greater.

She enjoys caring for individual patients, but is also committed to improving the health of women as a whole.

As a professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at UC San Diego School of Medicine, Dr. LaCoursiere instructs medical students, residents and fellows. She is also the associate director of the department's residency program.

Dr. LaCoursiere has won the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology & Council on Residency Education's National Faculty Teaching award three times at two institutions and has co-authored over 30 publications. She has also presented regionally and nationally on maternal obesity issues.

She began her faculty career as an assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Utah School of Medicine and returned to UC San Diego School of Medicine to complete the Women's Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) program, where she has focused on outcomes associated with maternal obesity.

Dr. LaCoursiere completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology and earned her medical degree at UC San Diego School of Medicine. She holds a master's of public health in epidemiology and biostatistics from San Diego State University. She is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
