Lyndhurst Gynecologic Associates: Caring for women for a lifetime

Turning 50 years old in 2020, Lyndhurst Gynecologic Associates first opened its doors in 1970 and has served women in the Winston-Salem and surrounding area well by sharing ideas and resources among its physicians and focusing on continued education in new and advanced methods for changing women’s lives.

Consider the term “woman care,” and you’ll immediately realize women of all ages and backgrounds present with different healthcare needs, at all stages of life. The strong, personable Lyndhurst team of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and dedicated staff are the trusted professionals to have on your side through every one of those stages!

Starting with complete physical exams, pap tests, breast exams, wellness exams and overall good health promotion (now that it’s a bright new year!), the range of Lyndhurst’s professional services also includes complete obstetrics, birth control and family planning counseling, mammogram counseling, menopause counseling, and hormone therapy. They also offer ultrasound evaluation of pelvic pain, help for painful or irregular menstrual cycles, osteoporosis screening and bone density testing, as well as minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, vaginal hysterectomy, and reconstruction for prolapse, and laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Last fall, the practice added a pair of talented new physicians, each with specific areas of focus, both with the Lyndhurst dedication to excellence.

Dr. Kendra Kesty joined the practice in September of 2019 and is proud to be part of the Lyndhurst tradition.

“Our team at Lyndhurst has a shared vision of providing the best woman-centered healthcare possible,” she says. “We stand on the shoulders of our founders and long-standing partners, who have molded this practice into the best place in the world for women to get preventative and obstetric/gynecologic care. A unique and valuable aspect of our practice is a shared attitude as providers to “never sweat alone.” For example, we discuss and re-examine difficult cases together in order to continually improve our practice and care.”

Originally from northern Ontario, Canada, Dr. Kesty received her Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in Minnesota, and then attended Wake Forest Bowman Gray School of Medicine, following by completing her residency at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. She’s delighted to have been able to return to the Winston-Salem area!

A Junior Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Kesty’s professional interests include contraceptive counseling, high-risk obstetrics, vulvar dermatology, robotic and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, and urogynecology. When not treating patients and learning more about her professional focus, she enjoys running, biking, traveling, spending time with her family, and discovering new places to swim.

Also recently joining the practice, Dr. Nicholas Schoenbachler completed his residency at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, and remaining in the area was an easy choice.

“I grew up in a small town in Mississippi, and when my wife and I were considering where to plant our roots and raise our family, we knew we wanted a place that retains that small-town feel. We found that to be true here in Winston-Salem!” says Dr. Schoenbachler. “I like that Lyndhurst has been a staple in this community for 50 years, and multiple times a week I have the opportunity to meet a patient who has been receiving care from our practice for 30 plus years, or an expectant mother who tells me they were personally delivered by one of the late partners.”

Dr. Schoenbachler graduated with a B.S. in Biological Sciences from Mississippi State University, and then attended the University of Mississippi for medical school. His clinical interests include obstetrics, minimally invasive and pelvic surgery, urinary incontinence, pelvic floor disorders, and general gynecology.

In his free time, Dr. Schoenbachler enjoys spending time with his wife Morgan and their two children, Dawson and Hart, attending Twin City Bible Church, and enjoying the great outdoors through hiking, fishing, and camping in the North Carolina Mountains.
