The Da Vinci robotic system simplifies surgery

The world’s first approved robotic-assisted surgical system, the da Vinci allows Dr. Shakiba to make much smaller incisions for less scarring and downtime.

Surgical treatments help heal your life

Dr. Shakiba also performs a range of surgeries to transform your life. These include:

Pelvic floor reconstructive surgeries

As women age or experience childbirth, their uterus, rectum, and bladder can prolapse, or drop, due to weakened muscles and ligaments attached to the pelvis. This can cause vaginal discomfort, pain during intercourse, and even constipation. Using reconstructive surgery, Dr. Shakiba eases your pain and improves the function of your vagina, bladder, and bowel.

Myomectomy fibroid removal

Patients suffering from fibroid pain may find relief through surgery. Employing minimally invasive surgery, such as a myomectomy, Dr. Shakiba can preserve your fertility while removing painful fibroids.

Ovarian cysts

Cysts, which can be benign or cancerous, painful or unnoticeable, often appear outside or inside your ovaries. They sometimes rupture or grow so large they maneuver your ovary into painful positions. Dr. Shakiba removes benign cysts through a minimally invasive approach, to help preserve your ovary and maintain fertility.

Laparotomy versus laparoscopy surgery

Dr. Shakiba removes ovarian cysts, ovaries, and endometriosis through less invasive laparoscopy surgery and more traditional laparotomy surgery. While the former carries fewer risks and less downtime, Dr. Shakiba relies on a laparotomy in certain instances. According to The American Cancer Society, surgery for endometrial cancer using laparoscopy appears to work as well as more traditional procedures. The real difference lies in the hands of your surgeon.
