She completed a pediatric rheumatology fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, where she also earned her medical degree and doctorate in genetics.

Sestak graduated from Edmond Memorial High School and was named a Sir Alexander Fleming Scholar at OMRF while in high school.

She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Rheumatology and Children’s Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance.

OU Children’s Physicians practice as part of OU Physicians, Oklahoma’s largest physician group. The group encompasses nearly every child and adult medical specialty.

Nearly 150 of these specialists committed their practices to the care of children. The majority of OU Children’s Physicians are board-certified in children’s specialties. Many provide pediatric-specific services unavailable elsewhere in the state. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts.

OU Children’s Physicians see patients in their offices at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. Many children with birth defects, critical injuries or serious diseases who can’t be helped elsewhere come to OU Children’s Physicians. Oklahoma doctors and parents rely on OU Children’s Physicians depth of experience, nationally renowned expertise and sensitivity to children’s emotional needs.
