      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Entabi's Care Philosophy

      When I take care of a patient, whether in the operating room or in the office, I treat them as I would treat my family. I strive for an environment of mutual respect and my highest priority is patient safety. - Dr. FATEH Entabi

      Dr. Entabi says...

      As a solo provider in a private practice, I am able to provide a very personal experience to every patient I take care of. That is a rare quality in today's medical environment.

      Hernia Surgery: I am proud of my track record of all the operations I did. I particularly specialize in hernia surgery. Many patients come to my practice after trying out multiple surgeons and developing hernia recurrences. 

      Breast: I am proud to team up with private providers from different medical discipline to provide exceptional care for the patients with breast cancer. Together, we provide comprehensive care that include pathology, medical oncology and radiation oncology. 

      Skin cancer: Unfortunately, it is a common problem in the valley. I offer a full range of care from resecting the cancer, performing a sentinel lymph node biopsy, to reconstructing the anatomical area and re-establishing good cosmetic outcome.

      Pilonidal disease: I am proud to be the only provider in the valley to offer "cleft lift".

      Dr. Entabi says...

      I firmly believe that the best operation is one that establishes the goal of the operation with the least amount of surgery. Thus, I am always pushing the limits of minimally invasive surgery. I am proud that my patients are able to go back to work and usual function very soon. 

      I do all the usual common surgical operations in a minimally invasive fashion (laparoscopically, or even percutaneously). Specifically: 

      Laparoscopic Ventral hernia repair

      Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair

      Laparoscopic cholecystectomy 

      Laparoscopic Appendectomy 

      Cleft lift ( cures pilonidal disease)

      Breast surgery

      Sentinel lymph node biopsy

      Skin cancer (resection and reconstruction)

      Peritoneal dialysis access

      Postsurgical pain treatment

      Laparoscopic lysis of adhesions

      Hemorrhoidectomy

      Perianal disease
