Khashayar Shakiba, MD, FACOG
Dr. Shakiba is a Board Certified Gynecologist, a Fellow of the American Congress
of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a Certified Robotic Surgeon. He has studied
under some of the most respected and advanced minimally invasive pelvic reconstructive
surgeons in the world both during his internship at Yale New Haven Hospital (affiliated
with Yale Medical School) and his residency at Cleveland Clinic Foundation.
Breakthroughs in robotic technology over the last ten years have benefited tens
of thousands of patients. Dr. Shakiba has performed over one hundred successful
robotic assisted surgeries and has proctored or assisted on an additional 200 procedures.
Dr. Shakiba adopted the da Vinci robotic assisted surgical approach because it enabled
him to enhance the most advanced minimally invasive technology with his surgical
skills. He is one of the few surgeons in the New York Metropolitan area who consistently
provides his patients facing or considering surgery for pelvic organ prolapse, urinary
incontinence, pelvic floor reconstructive surgery, and other gynecological procedures
with the best possible minimally invasive results while reducing the large scars
and long recovery times too often associated with open procedures
In addition to inventing the “Electronic Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification system
( E- POP Q system)” which is in the final phase of its’ clinical trial, he is the
author of multiple articles and abstracts concerning minimally invasive gynecological
surgery. His articles and abstracts have been published in peer-reviewed scientific
journals such as “Obstetrics and Gynecology (Green Journal)”, “Human Reproduction”
and “Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology” amongst others. His original research
titled “Surgical Treatment of Endometriosis: A 7-Year Follow-up on the Requirement
for Further Surgery” opened a new window about surgical management of endometriosis
and is rated among the top ten articles of the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Shakiba is an accomplished speaker who has presented at many local, regional,
