Bret T. Henderson, M.D., board certified, attended college at Auburn University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. After working in this field for two years, he decided to live out his life-long dream of becoming a physician and began his medical education at the University Of Alabama School Of Medicine in Birmingham where he obtained a Doctor of Medicine degree. He then completed his internship and residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at The University of South Alabama Children’s and Women’s Hospital. During his time at Children’s and Women’s Hospital he was awarded the AAGL Award in Minimally Invasive Gynecology, Best Robotic Surgeon and Best Gynecology Resident.
Dr. Henderson is extensively trained in robotic and minimally invasive surgery but also loves the obstetrics side of medicine. “There is no greater reward in medicine than welcoming life into this world.” He enjoys developing relationships with his patients and believes that continuity of care is an important aspect of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Henderson’s goal each time he walks into a patient’s room is to put her at the center of his attention and listen intently to her needs.
Dr. Henderson grew up locally and is excited to begin practicing medicine in the area he calls home. He now lives in Fairhope with his wife, Emily, and two children, Mason and Logan. When he’s not at the office he enjoys spending quality time with his family, fitness training, coaching his sons’ sports teams and watching Auburn football. He is an active member of Fairhope United Methodist Church as well as a member of multiple medical societies.
