WHY MINNESOTA WOMEN'S CARE IS DIFFERENT
The newest, most effective treatments available anywhere.

Minnesota Women's Care has a different approach. Rather than staying with the procedures that were used during your grandmother's time, we are committed to providing the most up-to-date treatments available. We constantly search for new technology and procedures.  
We believe in using the least invasive therapy or surgery available to correct issues and help women get back to their busy lives as quickly and painlessly as possible. When surgery is recommended, we use minimally invasive procedures when applicable – procedures that will get the best results while promoting faster healing and less pain during recovery. Talk with us. We'll help.

You don't need to suffer with ongoing pelvic pain and discomfort. We work with you to find the cause and develop a plan to restore your health. Live the life you want to live.

BACKGROUND
Our Team of Experts

Sometimes called "Band-Aid" surgery, minimally invasive surgery has become an important way to think about and perform surgeries. With a smaller incision, there's less pain and less blood loss. Often, patients recover faster.
Minnesota Women's Care is fortunate to have OBGYN surgeons on our team with advanced minimally invasive surgical training and certification. 

Dr. Amy Kelly

She has been recognized as a "Top Doctor" in the annual Mpls/St. Paul Magazine "Top Doctors" issue for more than ten years in a row and is regularly recognized in Minnesota Monthly as a “Best Doctor for Women.”

SOERS-small.pngDr. Kelly is board-certified in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS). In addition, in 2023 Dr. Kelly achieved accreditation from SRC as a Surgeon of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (SOERS) with St. John’s Hospital. The hospital has been an SRC-accredited Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) since 2019.

(This specialty was formerly known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.) Very early in his career as a physician, he discovered the advantages of minimally invasive surgeries and has been an advocate for the tremendous benefits is provides to women undergoing a procedure. He has earned a reputation in the Twin Cities as a skilled pelvic surgeon and has proven experience helping women recover from some of the most complex pelvic floor disorders.  

top-doctors-v2.jpgDr. Ashford's training and experience in female pelvic reconstructive surgery and gynecology has earned raving accolades from his patients. In addition, he has been recognized by his peers as a "Top Doctor" in MPLS/St. Paul Magazine every year since 2014.

OUR FOCUS
Complex Gynecologic Issues: Surgery and Treatment

A variety of conditions may affect a woman’s uterus, vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes over the course of her life. Common types of gynecologic conditions - such as fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse - can cause significant problems and impact the lives of women. 

Our innovative and comprehensive treatment programs start with an accurate diagnosis. Our care plans are attentive to our patients' emotional, educational, and physical needs. Where surgery is required, the most advanced and least invasive procedures will be used.

At Minnesota Women's Care, we will work with you to address the medical conditions that can impact the quality of your life. For the most common conditions women experience, we offer both medical and surgical treatment options. 

Treatment for Uterine Fibroids

There are many surgical and non-surgical treatment options for fibroids. The best treatment approach depends on many factors including what symptoms you are experiencing, the size number and location of the fibroids, and whether you are interested in pregnancy or not, among others. Your doctor will work with you to tailor the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include hormonal and non-hormonal therapies, GnRH modulators, and a variety of minimally-invasive procedures. Read more about treatment for Uterine Fibroids. 

Treatment for Endometriosis

When a woman has endometriosis, the tissue that lines her uterus, called the endometrium, grows outside of the uterus. Depending on your symptoms, our physicians may recommend non-surgical and surgical solutions such as pain medication, hormone treatment, surgical removal of the growths, endometrial ablation, or hysterectomy. Read more about Treatment for Endometriosis.

Treatment for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding

There are a number of different reasons why you might be experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding. These include hormonal imbalances, PCOS, endometriosis, and uterine fibroids to name a few. Again, our physicians will work with you to make an accurate diagnosis and recommend the right treatment for you. Read more about treatment for abnormal Uterine Bleeding.

All About Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy, removal of the uterus, is a surgical procedure that is an effective treatment for a number of conditions. When medication and non-invasive procedures are unable to relieve symptoms, surgery remains the accepted and most effective treatment for a range of gynecologic conditions. At Minnesota Women's Care, we believe in prioritizing the use of minimally invasive surgical procedures when possible. This means that the surgery is performed with a much smaller incision. In real terms, for you as a patient, this means a faster recovery time and less pain. Read more about Hysterectomy here.

  • I had the O shots done at the Minnesota Woman's Care Clinic in Maplewood. In going into the clinic I had some fears of pain but to my surprise throughout the procedure it was at a zero. I didn't feel a thing the highest I would say on the pain scale of ten is 1 one of my main concerns was pain when I was reading about it because it sounds kind of scary but yeah I would say I didn't even feel it and I will definitely get the O shots done again at this clinic. Dr. Ashford and his team did an excellent job!
    – A.M. - Patient
  • I have been seeing Dr Ashford since he first opened the clinic in Maplewood. I had previously received hormone therapy elsewhere with very little education or care. It doesn't take long to see that Dr. Ashford deeply cares about women's health. He takes his time and listens. He is worth waiting for. Best of all he is on the cutting edge when it comes to menopause relieving (and perhaps reversing) the signs & symptoms of aging as well and many other surgical procedures very few have mastered. I have referred this clinic to many of my friends all of whom are in their 50s. Most of them have found another doctor within the multiple clinic locations and are also very happy!! Dr. Ashford has done a great job training them especially in the areas of hormone therapy. I always feel like I'm in good & caring hands when I go in to MN Women's Clinic. I can't say enough good ....except thank you for giving me quality of life back!

  • Sharing new symptoms that I didn't think would be related, resulted in finding an issue that we had not previously found. Tying that into all the other things I've had going on and we have a new direction to look for answers and relief. Time and time again, I feel that I'm getting more answers and relief than I ever have with any other clinic. Dr Ashford and his team are all so helpful and I feel like they truly care about resolving my problems. I've never felt so passionate about the help I've gotten from a clinic. Life changing is an understatement with regards to the help I've received.

  • I have been coming to the Minnesota Women's Care clinic for the past 3 years, I have seen many of the wonderful doctor's here and it's been nothing but a positive experience. I am now enrolled in a program with Dr. Ashford that I have been a part of for the last 2 months. Everyone involved in this program has been exceptional! I will admit that the wait is occasionally been a little longer than I wanted but it is always been worth the wait. Dr. Ashford and his team have always been there to listen, and help with any issues I have had. I have never felt rushed or not listened to, I always feel that all my questions and concerns are taken care of.

    The HCG program has been tough at times but very rewarding. I have dropped almost 2 sizes in less than two months, Dr. Ashford and Courtney have been amazing through out my entire experience. Courtney has been life changing, I have learned so much that I will take with me always! Thank you both so much for a rewarding and much needed experience!

    Dr. Ashford is the most honest and thoughtful provider I've ever worked with. He explains decision making with clarity and ease without making you feel overwhelmed or small. I'm someone with a boat load of anxiety and Dr. Ashford and the team here at MNWC are truly sensitive to my needs and want to see their patients reach their wellness goals. I'm beyond thankful and wish I could begin to describe the kind of gratitude that comes with that but for now I'd just say thank you so much!

  • I wasn't sure what to expect given that this was my first time ever meeting with a chiropractor and meeting someone for my pregnancy sciatica pain that I've had my last pregnancy as well. But Erin has made me feel really comfortable and made it easy for me to trust her with my body. She thoroughly explains what she is doing so I don't become alarmed and also in a way that I understand. Overall, it's been a great experience!

  • Erin is so caring and great at what she does! She has been adjusting me for a while and I have never had a bad experience! She is always so caring and has definitely helped with making both chronic and acute pain feel better! I am so grateful for all she has done and would highly recommend her!

  • I am 39 weeks pregnant and have been having issues with sciatic nerve pain and groin cramping. Erin has adjusted me during both my pregnancies and has given me so much relief; from migraines, neck pain, to ligament pain relief, and now to my current issues. She is wonderful with her patients.

  • I wasn't sure what to expect given that this was my first time ever meeting with a chiropractor and meeting someone for my pregnancy sciatica pain that I've had my last pregnancy as well. But Erin has made me feel really comfortable and made it easy for me to trust her with my body. She thoroughly explains what she is doing so I don't become alarmed and also in a way that I understand. Overall, it's been a great experience!

  • Amazing chiropractor, amazing person! I have been seeing Dr Erin for a few years now starting at a prior location. She has allowed me to live pain free as well as provide many tips and tricks to prolong my bodily health

  • Dr. Ashford and staff are absolutely top-notch. He treated several conditions I had with excellent results and corrected some mistakes other physicians had made. I didn't have to to go Mayo although I had thought about it. I found exactly what I needed at MN Women's Care. No matter what your condition, don't hesitate. Make the call for an appointment. You won't be disappointed.

    Being an older woman like me doesn't mean we have to go through life ashamed, hopeless, or even ignorant about our own bodies. Dr. Ashford and staff treat women who have lots of different issues. They restore hope, dignity and make life full of possibilities again for things you may have thought were hopeless. I am so happy I go there for treatment.

  • I love going to the MN Women's Care clinic and Dr. Ashford is the best of the best that there is! He is very caring, knowledgeable and very passionate about what he does.

    Dr. Ashford delivered my soon in 2009 and when I found out he had his own clinic in 2013 I just had to have him as my doctor again for my second child and third child. His team is so amazingly wonderful and very friendly and I love that you can just chit chat about things you have in common with them or everyday life. I have recommended this clinic and Dr. Ashford to all of my family and friends. The facility is beautiful and very clean! Wait time and scheduling was excellent when they first opened and as time went on they became busier as a growing clinic and wait time and scheduling was some times longer and further out which is understandable as a growing clinic, but I called towards the end of Dec. 2017 and couldn't get in to see anyone until the end of Jan 2017 which I just think is too long of a wait to see someone. Overall I wouldn't go anywhere else, but here. I really appreciate what Dr. Ashford has done here for all Women and thank you to his family for sharing him with the world!

The front desk staff always greets you with a smile and a warm welcome the facility is always clean and location is assessable if taking a bus. Scheduling and wait times are good if can't get in with primary you are always offered to see someone else. My treatment has always been excellent and geared to benefits my needs at the time. With that being said I need to call to schedule an appointment. Thank you.

  • What's not to love about Doctor Kelly, she listens to any concerns you may have and leaves you feeling so confident & calm. She wants to hear about your family and see how you are doing as an individual. She has been my OB for all of my kids and has guided my husband and I on this journey so smoothly. She gives great explanations for each decision she wants to make to help guide you on this journey which has always given me such trust in her to not doubt her choices.
    – M.K. - Patient
  • Dr. Kelly is wonderful! She is very competent, compassionate, and skilled in caring for patients with complex medical situations!
    – A.O. - Patient
  • I really appreciate Dr. Kelly's expertise and honestly. I've known her for 10 years, through 4 children and now working through the changes of turning 40! She has always been so down to earth and real. She's not just interested in my medical health but my overall well being. She remembers the little things even from years before. She's just amazing!
    – J.B. - Patient
  • Dr. Kelly is such a caring doctor. She adds humor to every situation. She is a doctor that sits down at your level and talks to you. She makes it clear that she has the time and doesn't make her time with you feel rushed. She is a great listener. She made my c-section exciting and 'fun,' (where sometimes it might otherwise be stressful and not the plan you had been planning on). I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am so thankful that she was able to deliver my baby girl. We will never forget Dr. Kelly, because she truly makes a difference.
    – N.H. - Patient
  • Dr.Kelly got me through two very difficult pregnancies. I had complications that were scary and painful for me, but she made them so much easier to go through it. She spoke very clearly to me, made sure I understood everything and that I was well taken care of. She listened to my concerns and helped me find the right answer for me. There was a time that I had to be seen right away and even though she wasn't in the office that day, she came right in. I have never had a doctor more reliable. I don't know how I would have done it without her.
    – A.R. - Patient
  • Dr. Kelly is one of the best ob/gyns I have ever worked with! Her knowledge is amazing and her personality is even better! Dr. Kelly gives great suggestions for dealing with any questions or concerns that I have, and she knows the latest medical treatments. I trusted her completely with my prenatal care and the delivery of my twins 7 years ago. Now I continue to see her yearly because she is so personable and takes great care of me.

  • Dr. Kelly is our "all in the family" physician and my daughters and I have been her patients for many years. Both in my own care and during the deliveries of my grandchildren, she has been encouraging, supportive, and exceptionally skilled. I continue to have the highest level of confidence in her care.

  • I absolutely adore Dr. Kelly. In fact, I followed her from her old practice because I have so much trust in her. And she is just a joy to be around!

  • Not sure how many people can say that they followed Dr Ashford from Allina. Andrea has been my OB provider since 2002. I have seen many of the MNWC providers in my time and Dr Ashford delivered both my children. I absolutely love this family and the care they give. Dr Ashford has a wonderful mission! Thank you all.

  • My experience with Dr Ashford has been very positive in getting me back to good health after my surgery. I have had two surgeries with him and good results. Dr Ashford and nurses are a great team in providing healthy experience. Rachael, Andrea have done the uroystem treatment with me great success along with others that have assisted. I love Women's Care and have referred others to the clinic. Very helpful and supportive. Thanks.

  • I came to MN Womens Care in desperate need of help. Dr Crabb was the first doctor to really listen to me, to hear my complex symptoms and work on solutions. He is an excellent surgeon who gave me back my body from the adhesions and endometriosis scars that had developed over many years. I credit Dr Crabb and his staff for giving me the best experience I have had with the medical profession in years. Thank you.
