The Team

Derek H. Potts
Derek H. Potts, founder and national managing partner of Potts Law Firm, is a nationally recognized trial lawyer who has been a court appointed leader in some of the largest complex litigations of the past decade. Driven by his passion for litigation, Potts became one of the few plaintiffs’ lawyers from around the country to spearhead what would become the largest medical device multidistrict litigation consolidations in history — he and his litigation partners ultimately resolved more than $1 million in transvaginal mesh settlements. More recently, the United States Court of Federal Claims appointed Potts as Plaintiffs’ Class Counsel to lead the case against the Army Corps of Engineers for the release of water from reservoirs during Hurricane Harvey that flooded more than 9,000 homes and businesses. His dedication to law, justice and helping others has led to the creation of the Potts Family Foundation, which is involved with multiple charities.

 

Tristi Muir, MD
Urogynecologist
Chair of Women’s Services at Houston Methodist Hospital

  • Have you been to Haiti before? Yes.
  • Have you been on a medical mission trip before, and if yes, where? Yes – Haiti and India.
  • Why did you become an urogynecologist? I love being able to improve the quality of life for women. Prolapse and incontinence can slowly take away activities that a woman enjoys. Life is short, and I want women to enjoy every moment they can without the restrictions and isolation that pelvic floor disorders cause.
  • What’s the most important item you are bringing on this trip? My camera. I love to capture a moment and cement memories.
  • Tell us one fun fact about you that your friends might not know: My grandmother was my best friend. She taught me the importance of being there for family. She had the perfect lap when I was young, and wise advice when I was an adult. She would have loved to travel to Haiti with me and help in any way she could.

  • Have you been on a medical mission trip before, and if yes, where? Yes – Haiti, Ghana, Liberia, Japan, India, Jamaica and the Philippines.

  • Have you been to Haiti before? No.
  • Have you been on a medical mission trip before, and if yes, where? Yes – Tanzania.

Shweta Pai, MD
Urogynecology fellow, Houston Methodist Hospital

  • Have you been to Haiti before? No.
  • Have you been on a medical mission trip before, and if yes, where? Yes – Trinidad, Tobago, Honduras and Tanzania.
  • Why did you become an urogynecologist? Because I want to help women regain their optimal quality of life. When women come to see an urogynecologist, they are in a vulnerable state, often dealing with an issue that is embarrassing or that they don’t know very much about. I love educating women on pelvic floor disorders and helping them regain their confidence and restore their lifestyle.
  • What’s the most important item you are bringing on this trip? My matching scrub hat! I have grown very close to my attending surgeons who are participating in this surgical mission, and we all have matching scrub hats, so I am bringing mine to show our team’s strength and solidarity.
  • Tell us one fun fact about you that your friends might not know: I was a college tennis player at Washington University in St. Louis.
