Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Orady "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. There is often a range of options and I discuss all the risks and benefits of each with the patient in detail. As a minimally invasive surgeon, this often means choosing the smallest intervention possible that will effectively solve the particular problem that the patient has.  This can be as simple as an office procedure or a small outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, or can move into larger surgeries. But even larger surgeries such as hysterectomy or myomectomy can be approached in different ways such as vaginally, using Mini-Laparoscopy, Traditional Laparoscopy, or Robotic (daVinci) Assisted Laparoscopy. The approach taken is dependent on the needs of the patient and thus the pain and recovery of surgery can be minimized while accomplishing exactly what is needed to solve the problem and return her to her normal Life, only better. "
