Professional Statement
A native to Los Angeles, Dr. Lauren Cadish studied medicine at the University of Chicago before completing her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. There, she developed an interest in pelvic floor disorders which led her to pursue three additional years of fellowship training in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center. Following fellowship, she came to Santa Monica to start the Urogynecology program within Providence Specialty Medical Group. As a urogynecologist, Dr. Cadish focuses her efforts on educating, evaluating, and treating women with pelvic organ prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, fistula, and other pelvic floor disorders. Trained in vaginal, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery, the vast majority of her surgical procedures are performed using minimally invasive techniques. She is a strong believer in patient advocacy, listening to her patients, never pushing elective surgery, and meticulous informed consent. Dr. Cadish's research interests include the evaluation of surgical procedures for incontinence and prolapse, optimal surgical teaching, and health policy. In her free time, she enjoys literary fiction, listening to National Public Radio, cooking, and spending time with family, including her husband and young son. La Dra. Cadish habla espanol y tiene un interes en asegurar que pacientes hispanohablantes pueden comunicar con su medica y cirujana en su lengua nativa.
