I have so many patients to thank for pushing me to learn and discover the power of integrative medicine and the idea of finding the root cause of illness and disease. As a result, I've managed to shift my focus from a medication only model to an approach that examines all possible healing strategies.
Anita Sadaty, MD, board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, is an OB/GYN at North Shore University Hospital, clinical assistant professor at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, and has been teaching residents at Northwell's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for the past two decades.
Her practice, Redefining Health Medical in Roslyn, New York, is one of the few that incorporates functional medicine into gynecologic practice. Functional medicine attempts to identify and address the root cause of disease rather than simply reduce symptom expression with the use of medications.
