Dr. Al Elbendary and staff offer comprehensive care for women with gynecologic cancers and precancerous conditions in a comfortable office setting. When you need a specific type of care, it’s reassuring to know the physician and staff are experts in this area.
Dr. Elbendary serves patients with newly diagnosed gynecologic cancers; patients with dysplasia, premalignant gynecological lesions, pelvic masses, or postmenopausal bleeding; and patients requiring complex gynecologic surgery or reconstruction.
A practicing specialist since 1996, Dr. Elbendary is board-certified in gynecology and gynecologic oncology. He treats women with precancerous and cancerous gynecologic conditions and also performs laparoscopic, or minimally invasive surgery, and pelvic reconstruction surgery.
Gynecologic oncology is a subspecialty of gynecology that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic cancers, such as cancers of the ovaries, uterus, cervix, or vulva, as well as precancerous conditions.
Dr. Elbendary is supported by Kate Burch, a women’s healthcare nurse practitioner (WHNP) and board-certified menopausal clinician (MC). She provides well-woman consults and health screenings, contraceptive counseling, and hormone therapy, as well as genetic testing.
Chemotherapy services are provided at the office by specially trained nurses through Missouri Baptist Medical Center’s Cancer and Infusion Center. The center is dedicated to treating women with gynecologic cancers. Although privacy is respected, many patients enjoy the intimate setting, sharing their experience with others going through similar treatment, and having a staff that knows them well.
