A big THANK YOU to award-winning R&B artist, Monica, who had the courage to speak out about endometriosis to help women know they are not alone. Ceana Nezhat, MD, FACOG, FACS diagnosed the cause of her debilitating health issues and performed surgery on the singer to remove endometriosis, cysts, fibroids, and a hernia.

After her surgery, Monica said “In life we have to count it all joy and know the unplanned may be in his plan…I’ve known something was wrong but I also knew victory & better health would be near again!! Thank you Dr. Ceana Nezhat & Northside Hospital Staff.” She also concluded, “One thing I’ve learned throughout this particular journey is that you have to listen to your body, and you have to listen to your doctor, which means you have to know, respect and understand them; it’s a relationship that’s very important.”
