Dr. Iris Kerin Orbuch is the Director of the Advanced Gynecologic Laparoscopy Center in Los Angeles and author of Beating Endo How to Reclaim Your Life From Endometriosis.
She sees the value in addressing Endometriosis, an inflammatory disease, via eastern and western approaches. The cornerstone of endometriosis treatment is surgical excision of endometriosis, though she understands the importance of incorporating integrative medicine and combining eastern & western medicine approaches in helping her patients heal and getting them on the road to recovery. She understands that endometriosis is a major reason women experience pain, though she strives to assess for all additional co-existing generators of pain in order to help women live pain free productive lives. She is co-author of the book Beating Endo: How to Reclaim Your Life from Endometriosis.
Her training, under the guidance of Dr. C.Y. Liu and Dr. Harry Reich — both pioneers in the field of advanced laparoscopic surgery — allows Dr. Orbuch to be one of a handful of physicians across the country trained to perform advanced minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Orbuch provides both compassionate and individualized care while performing advanced laparoscopic techniques at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, California. Dr. Orbuch is board certified in OB/GYN.
Dr. Orbuch offers Gentle, Compassionate Care and a Personal Touch. When you visit her office, you won’t find a rushed, impersonal environment. Instead, Dr. Orbuch and her staff are committed to providing personal, compassionate services to each and every client. Dr. Orbuch is devoted to helping women live a productive and pain-free life.
