Dr. Edward Heidtman is a native of Central Florida. He received both his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Florida in Gainesville, and received the honor of Phi Beta Kappa during his undergraduate years.
Dr. Heidtman completed his residency at the Greenville Hospital System where he delivered over a thousand babies, performed hundreds of gynecologic surgeries, and received recognition for his surgical skills and clinical research. A sixth-generation Floridian, he assumed that his time in Greenville would merely be a “change of scenery” for a few years before returning to Central Florida to be nearer his family’s orange groves. However, he fell in love with the area and decided to make the Upstate his permanent home.
After completing residency, Dr. Heidtman worked at a practice in Spartanburg for 5 years before returning to Greenville to join a smaller practice where he could focus more on individualized care, and the Carolina Center for Women's Health was created. Four years later, Carolina Center for Women's Health merged with the former Greenville East Center for Women, forming Carolina Women's Health and moving the practice to its current location on Halton Road in Greenville.
Dr. Heidtman and his wife, Leigh, have two children. He enjoys traveling, spending time with his family, water sports, snow skiing, golf, playing the piano and landscaping. He and his wife are very active in the community and she is on the boards of several charitable organizations. They attend the Buncombe Street Methodist Church.
Dr. Heidtman has special interests in minimally-invasive women's surgeries and is one of few OB-GYNs in the Upstate trained to both perform surgery on the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System as well as perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) hysterectomy, with a single incision through the belly button. He also is currently serving as a proctor, helping train other physicians in the latest techniques for minimally-invasive hysterectomy. He is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a member of the South Atlantic Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Southeastern OB-GYN Society, as well as other local, state, and national professional societies.
