|Dr. Wm. Richard Salter was born and raised in Memphis, TN. After graduating from high school, he
attended Abilene Christian University and graduated cum laude in 1983. After graduation, he did a year
of research at Texas Tech Medical School, and then began medical school there in 1984. His first two
years of medical school at Texas Tech were in Lubbock, and the last two years were in El Paso, TX.
After graduating from medical school in 1988, he moved to Lexington, KY for an internship and
residency at the University of Kentucky in Obstetrics & Gynecology, completing his training in 1992.
After residency, Dr. Salter moved to Texarkana, TX and began his Ob-Gyn practice with a multi-
specialty clinic there. After two years in Texarkana, he and his wife decided to move to Dallas. He joined
a large single-specialty Ob-Gyn group, and established an office in Garland, Texas in 1995. Last year,
with two of his partners, Dr. Salter decided to leave the large group and start his own group, Advanced
Ob-Gyn Associates, opening the new practice on 4/1/08.
Dr. Salter's practice involves routine and high risk obstetrics, routine office gynecology, minimally
invasive in-office gynecologic procedures, minimally invasive major and minor gynecologic surgeries,
initial infertility evaluation and treatment, and early stage gynecologic cancer surgery. He has hospital
privileges at Forest Park Medical Center, Baylor Plano Medical Center, Baylor Garland Medical Center,
and North Garland Surgery Center. Dr. Salter is also a clinical faculty member of the Baylor Garland
Family Practice Residency program, and helps in the training and education of the Family Practice
residents in obstetrics and gynecology. In addition, he is a frequent speaker at national medical
meetings on minimally invasive office procedures, including Essure and Her Option, and assists in
training physicians in these and other surgical procedures. He is also one of the few Gynecologists in
Dallas to use the da Vinci robotic surgical system on all of his major gynecologic surgeries, giving his
patients the opportunity to have a quicker recovery and return to normal activities. Dr. Salter is
frequently interviewed by the local Dallas-area news channels where he is asked to discuss womenâ
€™s health care issues, trends, and new technology.
Dr. Salter has been married since 1994, and has 3 children: ages 13, 10, and 5. When not at the
hospital or office, he enjoys all outdoor activities with his family, including running, snowboarding, tennis,
and golf. He has been active in coaching his childrenâ€™s basketball teams for several years. For the
last few years, Dr. Salter's family has spent a week each summer in Guatemala on a medical mission trip
with physicians, nurses, and their families from several different churches in the Dallas-Ft Worth area.
For the past two winters Dr. Salter, several other general surgeons, and other specialists have gone to
Honduras to help patients needing surgery in under-served areas of that country. This summer, Dr.
Salter and his family went to Colorado where he was the camp physician for Kanakuk Colorado for one
of the summer terms. Dr. Salter also enjoys volunteering at Christâ€™s Family Clinic in Dallas several
times a month, providing medical care for disadvantaged patients.
