Benefit from the Latest, Safest Technologies

Through the use of today’s safe laser technologies and minimally invasive surgical techniques, Hawai‘i’s women are receiving advanced, comprehensive healthcare. At Pali Women’s Health Center, as many services as possible are performed in-office, including permanent birth control to treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding. 


These in-office procedures also include body sculpting, and help to remove unwanted fat from abdomen, hips, legs, arms, neck and chin. Called Smartlipo, this technology also tightens skin. Smartlipo is minimally invasive and an awake procedure with local anesthesia.  


Pali Women’s Health Center physicians also use another innovative laser treatment, MonaLisa Touch, to relieve vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. Especially useful for patients who have had breast cancer and are unable to use estrogen, MonaLisa Touch is a painless, five-minute treatment that requires no anesthesia and no hormones.  


Dr. Susan Chapman founded Pali Women’s Health Center in 1984. The Center has locations in Kailua and Lā‘ie, where O‘ahu’s women receive compassionate, friendly care in a spa-like setting. The collaborative, all–female team of OB/GYN physicians, nurse midwives and a physician assistant partner with each patient to provide patient-customized care—from honoring birthing plans to addressing sensitive gynecological issues. 


To learn more about the Center’s OB/GYN services and laser procedures, call 261-6644.
