Anita Sadaty, MD, FACOG, is an obstetrician-gynecologist at North Shore University Hospital, a clinical assistant professor at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, and has been teaching residents at Northwell's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for the past two decades. She is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
Her practice, Redefining Health Medical in Roslyn, New York, is one of the few that incorporates functional medicine into gynecologic practice. Functional medicine attempts to identify and address the root cause of disease rather than simply reduce symptom expression with the use of medications.

She is co-author on a research publication on diabetic wound healing published in the Journal of Surgical Research in 1991. In 1998, she presented a clinical research study completed during her residency training at the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology annual conference regarding the relative effectiveness of various labor induction agents.
Dr. Sadaty attended medical school at Cornell University graduating with honors as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha in 1994 and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as chief resident at North Shore University Hospital in 1998. She completed her certifications in functional medicine training at the Kalish Institute in 2014, the Kresser Institute in 2017, and the Institute for Functional Medicine in 2018.
