For the last 20 years Dr, Calbert has been in practice at St. Luke’s on the Plaza, but has maintained a satellite office in Lee’s Summit to perform outpatient surgery due to her passion for the patients she has developed in the area.
She enjoys helping people with the most memorable time in their lives – the birth of their children, and working with women through all stages of their lives from teenagers to the elderly.
In-office gyn procedures she provides include: colposcopy and LEEP procedures for abnormal pap smears and placement of contraceptive devices such as Nexplanon®, Mirena®, and Paraguard® IUD. Outpatient procedures include: minimally invasive sterilization, operative hysteroscopy for abnormal bleeding/polyp removal and endometrial ablation.
The most enjoyable part of her job is being a part of patients’ lives for many years and watching as their lives change. She has a personal passion for what patients are going through, having had a personal history of severe endometriosis necessitating IVF for each pregnancy, and two premature children due to severe preeclampsia. She is also proud to be a breast cancer survivor.
Her oldest daughter has been riding horses since she was 5 and is currently a freshman in college pursuing a career as an equine veterinarian. Her daughter was also very involved with the Jackson County 4-H and through her involvement led to Dr. Calbert’s involvement in 4-H, where she currently serves on the 4-H foundation and has been a project leader the past 6 years. Her youngest daughter is a junior in high school and enjoys theater.
