Dr. Dasouki Abu-Alnadi is a fellowship-trained Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgeon and a board certified obstetrics and gynecology physician. She attended medical school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City combined BA/MD program, completed residency at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (GO BLUE!), and completed fellowship subspecialty training at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
Dr. Dasouki Abu-Alnadi is known by her patients and staff as “Dr. Noor.” She is an expert minimally invasive surgeon and treats the full scope of gynecologic surgical and pelvic pain issues including fibroids, endometriosis, heavy or abnormal uterine bleeding, essure-related pain, pelvic floor dysfunction. Though she has special interests in robotic surgery, fertility preserving endometriosis and fibroid care, and surgical care of obese patients, Dr. Noor believes in providing comprehensive gynecologic care especially in populations such as breast cancer survivors.
Dr. Noor’s motto is “we are here to serve the people of North Carolina.” She has a strong commitment to her immediate community and is the AHEC OBGYN representative, which links UNC statewide with patients and providers through educational and medical programs. She believes in providing care for all populations and works with refugee populations locally. She has headed international medical relief efforts for gynecologic care in Jordan and Lebanon for several years. She is also fluent in Arabic.
When not providing medical care, Dr. Noor says her two sources of joy are her family and sunshine.
For Prospective Fellowship Trainees
What Is Your Main Clinical Interests?
All things education! Students, residents, fellows! My current research is focused on menstrual health education of patients through various community engagement efforts.
Why Did You Choose UNC?
It was a no-brainer for fellowship given the high volume, breadth of pathology, exposure to chronic pelvic pain, and endless opportunities to explore and expand my interests. I stayed on as faculty because in two years I had fallen in love with the division and the sunny Carolina blue sky. There is no better blue than Carolina blue!
