Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery
Obstetrics & Gynecology
Dr. Patel has been treating female pelvic floor issues for over thirteen years. He understands that while many of these issues are very common -- such as urinary incontinence, heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse, they are not normal and have a significant negative impact on women's quality of life. The goal of evaluation and treatment is to return that part of your life back to you.
Dr. Patel is an expert in the original, minimally invasive pelvic surgery -- vaginal surgery. He performs the vast majority of his procedures vaginally -- to include hysterectomy, vaginal mesh revision surgery, urinary incontinence procedures, and pelvic organ prolapse repairs. When necessary, he performs traditional laparoscopy with less incisions (3) than the average robotic-assisted procedure (4-5).
Every patient receives an individualized surgical plan that takes into account the patient's perspective, their surgical issues to be treated, and their medical-surgical history. In some cases, minimally invasive surgery is not the best option. In those rare scenarios, abdominal surgery can many times be performed through a small "bikini-line" type of incision.
