About Lisa N. Abaid, MD

Lisa N. Abaid, M.D., MPH, FACOG, FACS, is a gynecologic oncologist in Newport Beach and co-director of Gynecologic Oncology. She is also co-director for Hoag’s Breast & Ovarian Cancer Prevention Program. As such, she assists in developing and guiding treatment regimens tailored to “previvors,” women who have tested positive for a genetic mutation that increases their risk for breast and/or ovarian cancer. She provides comprehensive services for women at high-risk for gynecologic cancer, including pelvic exams, ultrasounds, surgery and medical management.

As a gynecologic oncologist, Dr. Abaid treats cancers of the female pelvis, including ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancer. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology with subspecialty board certification in Gynecologic Oncology. She is an AAGL Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) designee. Dr. Abaid received extensive training in robotic surgery during her fellowship and has an interest in minimally invasive approaches in the treatment of all gynecologic cancers, especially uterine cancer, some cervical cancers, and early ovarian cancer. She has vast experience in robotic-assisted hysterectomy, radical hysterectomy, pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy, and oophorectomy. In addition to performing robotic surgery for gynecologic cancers, she also treats patients with some benign conditions such as severe endometriosis and large uterine fibroids.

Dr. Abaid completed her undergraduate degree at Auburn University. She attended medical school at the University of Miami and performed her residency in Gynecology and Obstetrics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
