About Chimsom T. Oleka
I am excited, passionate and driven by purpose.
It is truly an honor to be here as your board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist and fellowship-trained Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologist at The Woodlands Campus of Texas Children’s Hospital.
To me, the field of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology is a field that affords the concentrated space to impact, treat, counsel and become an advocate for young girls who either cannot, will not or are unsure about how to be or do these things for themselves. Sometimes the complex spectrums of vulvar/vaginal issues, pubertal abnormalities, abnormal uterine bleeding, painful menstrual cycles, congenital uterine anomalies, disorders of sexual development and adnexal masses, etc. in addition to societal pressures, can make it confusing and difficult for young girls and young women to establish a true sense of self, self-confidence and a sense of identity. But hope begets endurance, endurance strengthens character and character builds confidence.
My clinical philosophy is expressed in the desire to be a clarifying breath of fresh air and hope to families and young girls/women dealing with complicated and sometimes mystifying, diagnoses and situations through the implementation of evidence-based surgical and medical treatment, as well as through the emotive restoration and rebuilding of life quality.
I hope to empower young women to take charge of their reproductive and sexual health, providing a safe outlet for discussion, dialogue and growth.

It is an honor to be your Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologist and I will always strive to unveil the “magic” and hope within each young girl and young woman, despite and while treating, her gynecologic situation, disorder or disease.
