Dr. Kahn's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kahn "Dr. Kahn is a board certified gynecologist and also was one of the first in the country to obtain additional subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (urogynecology). Thus he is able to treat the full spectrum of concerns related to the female pelvic organs. Dr. Kahn treats many complex gynecologic problems including uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms, contraception, infertility and more. He has particular expertise in treating difficult problems such as pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome), urinary incontinence, frequency and urgency (overactive bladder), as well as pelvic organ prolapse (uterine or vaginal prolapse). Whenever possible, Dr. Kahn seeks to find non-surgical solutions for his patients. However, when surgery is necessary, he strives to ensure that patients receive a minimally invasive procedure whenever possible. He has extensive experience in all type of pelvic surgery including vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic procedures. He was one of the first surgeons in San Diego to perform laparoscopic hysterectomy and more recently, he was one of the first to offer robotically-assisted single incision ("belly button") hysterectomy."

Dr. Kahn came to my rescue. He directly contacted my insurance company to advocate for me after I was denied surgery by my insurance through two other doctors. He performed my hysterectomy. From pre-surgery to post-surgery, Dr. Kahn was incredibly professional. He explained the process clearly...more

Dr. Kahn recently did my complete (radical) Da Vinci Robotic Hysterectomy. I went home about 3 hours after the surgery! Truly amazing! The recovery has been almost instant, with no pain afterwards.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have met Dr. Kahn and for the first time, there is light at the end of the tunnel for me. After being in pain for 10+ years and 20+ doctors telling me to get a hysterectomy... he found a nerve on my abdomen causing all my pain. WOW, I was ready to have a...more

If you feel like being rushed in, given a survey to fill out to rate your pain that day and told you are not bad enough to be treated, come back when you are in severe pain then this doctor is for you. If you want a more personal touch go elsewhere!
