Gynecology Q & A

What aspects of health does gynecology address?

Gynecology addresses a woman’s reproductive system. This system consists of the:

  • Vagina
  • Ovaries
  • Uterus
  • Fallopian tubes


Your gynecological health can affect you throughout your life, whether you’re sexually active, considering pregnancy, postpartum, or are in perimenopause or full menopause.

What conditions might require special gynecological care?

Routine pelvic exams help maintain your gynecologic health and identify potential health problems, including endometriosis, fibroids, cysts, prolapse, and cancer. Many of these conditions cause pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, infertility, cramping, irregular menstrual cycles, and other disabling symptoms.

Dr. Shakiba offers lifestyle strategies and medications for treatment. In many cases, the best treatment for these conditions is surgery, but he always looks for the most conservative, minimally invasive approach to treatment possible.

In addition to yearly exams, visit Dr. Shakiba for gynecologic care if you experience any of the following:

  • Irregular periods
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal Pap smear
  • Bloating and heaviness in the lower abdomen
  • Infertility
  • Painful intercourse


These symptoms indicate there may be an underlying problem that is easily addressable so your quality of life can improve. Seek gynecologic care if you have recurrent urinary tract infections, menopausal symptoms, or polycystic ovary syndrome – Dr. Shakiba can help.

What is minimally invasive gynecological surgery?

Dr. Shakiba promises the most minimally invasive approach possible for any gynecological condition. If surgery is required, this means he performs laparoscopic or robotic surgery in which small incisions and tiny instruments are used to treat the condition, such as removing a cyst or fibroid or repairing tissue.

The benefits of this robotic surgery include reduced hospital stays, faster recovery, little scarring, and less risk of infection or complications.

In many cases, the best way to treat benign gynecological conditions, such as uterine fibroids, is a hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus. But partial hysterectomies, ovarian surgery, endometrial biopsy and excision, fibroid removal while keeping the uterus intact, and pelvic prolapse surgery are all other surgical options, depending on your particular case.

Have your gynecological health evaluated and monitored to keep you healthy through all stages of your adult life. Call Women’s Pelvic Surgery of North Jersey or booking an appointment online.
