Care Philosophy

The Women's Center was founded 19 years ago to provide new opportunities in health and personal well-being. We resist the "big office/big medicine" model and remain independent, small and personal. One-on-one care allows us to promise confidentiality, integrity and excellence. Our mission is to create an environment for women's care and education that is comfortable and professional. We provide complete obstetric and gynecologic care as well as primary care. We strive to serve as a source for information on women's health issues. We try to help you identify and navigate the profit driven health misinformation found in the media (i.e. bio-identical hormones, menopause management, sexuality). An integrated approach is provided through links with other caregivers that women have found to be helpful. Our clinical staff, led by Dr. Bendell and Nurse Practitioner Karen Manning, will make every effort to ensure that your visit to our practice is as comfortable and productive as possible.Read more

Advanced Services, Convenience and Holistic Care:

We provide extensive diagnostic and therapeutic services on site including laboratory, ultrasound (3D/4D), urodynamics, colposcopy, hysteroscopy, semen analysis, ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, and LEEP.  We perform many traditionally hospital based procedures within our office (tubal sterilizations, endometrial ablation, HSG, hysteroscopy).  Dr. Bendell was the first local surgeon to offer the minimally invasive supracervical and total laparoscopic hysterectomy (same day discharge, rapid recovery, no large incision).  Hundreds of women have benefited from Dr. Bendell's minimally invasive (and often non-surgical) approach to vaginal prolapse and urine incontinence.  His PhD in Reproductive Biology has translated into many successful pregnancies for couples suffering from infertility.  We offer a very successful weight management clinic and are experts in hormone replacement therapy and the managing menopause.
