Biography

Dr. Lina Fouad is a fellowship-trained minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon. She directs the section of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) at the University of Florida's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Jacksonville. Her practice consists of a balance of clinical and academic gynecology. She is an expert in performing contemporary minimally invasive hysteroscopic, transvaginal, conventional laparoscopic and daVinci® robotic-assisted laparoscopic gynecological procedures. Those minimally invasive routes of surgery offer patients a decreased length of hospital stay, shorter recovery, faster return to normal activities and an improved quality of life. Read More

Dr. Fouad completed four years of training in an accredited obstetrics and gynecology residency program at St. Luke's University Hospital Network in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. She then went on to complete a two-year AAGL-accredited Fellowship in MIGS at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. She performed over 1,400 gynecological procedures during those two years of advanced medical and surgical training.

Dr. Fouad leads the UF Health Jacksonville Complex Gynecology Program. Referred patients are seen for consultation from colleagues and regional practices. She treats an array of conditions, including:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Advanced-stage endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Leiomyomas (uterine fibroids)
  • Pelvic masses
  • Pelvic pain

Dr. Fouad maintains her academic rigor through teaching resident physicians and medical students and contributing to medical research in gynecology. Dr. Fouad’s greatest passion is teaching the next generation of physicians. The most satisfying aspects about her job are providing patients with multiple treatment options and an improved quality of life after they have had smooth recoveries.

In her free time, Dr. Fouad enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, training for a half marathon, and self-development reading. One of her favorite inspirational quotes is "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" – Robert Breault
