Why Choose Us
Women need gynecological care throughout their lives, starting in puberty, through child bearing years, and into menopause. Our dedicated providers, including director Dr. Mona Orady can help with ongoing health and wellness care options that are personally designed for you. We treat a wide range of GYN conditions with modern and advanced surgical procedures, and we’re one of the few medical groups to offer minimally invasive surgery so that you can, hopefully, recover sooner.
For women experiencing gynecological pain, it is time to stop ignoring it especially if you suspect you are suffering from endometriosis, and definitely if your doctors haven’t yet diagnosed the problem. Seek a second or even third opinion in order to get the medical help and attention you deserve. Once you have a diagnosis, understanding your condition and what treatment options are available will also help you in making a choice on how to proceed.
Dr. Mona Orady, Director of Robotic Surgery Services at Saint Francis Memorial hospital, understands that your pain is real, and that it affects nearly every aspect of your life. It might be something you don’t realize, having lived with it, but once that pain is gone, your life can improve.
Diagnosing and treating endometriosis early, with techniques such as minimally invasive and robotic surgery, can remove the prospect of pain before it starts by removing it in its earliest stages and helping prevent it from progressing. This may also help eliminate some of the issues often associated with endometriosis, like infertility, pain with sex, and chronic pelvic pain.

Philosophy of Care: Accurate Diagnosis + Minimal Intervention = Maximum Impact
"My philosophy of care has everything to do with doing the least necessary to solve the problem and allow women to return to their normal lives as soon as possible. The key to this is accurate diagnosis of the problem, NOT the disease. Every person is different, and the same disease process affects each patient individually in different ways. Therefore, listening to the patient carefully with some guided diagnostic tools allows me to accurately diagnose the cause of the problem and then I am able to individualize the treatment of the patient according to her individual needs. This accurate diagnosis helps us work together to develop a treatment plan that will quickly and safely return her to normal function."
