    Philosophy

    Philosophy: 

    Dr. Ceana Nezhat is a leading pioneer in the field of laparoscopic surgery, specializing in laparoscopic treatment of severe and multi-organ endometriosis, laparoscopic management of infertility, and urologic and pelvic reconstruction. He has been instrumental in modifying many established procedures performed by laparotomy to laparoscopy with similar or improved outcomes. Examples of such include pelvic reconstruction, vaginal vault suspension, and treatment of urologic, gastrointestinal, and extragenital endometriosis, laparoscopic myomectomy for large uterine fibroids, and large pelvic and ovarian tumors. His practice is one of the leading referral centers worldwide for fertility enhancing surgery and difficult hysterectomies. Staying in the forefront of advancing minimally invasive surgery and technology, Dr. Nezhat began teaching Introduction to Robotic Surgery in 2003 and performed the first gynecologic robotic surgery in Georgia.

     

    Dr. Nezhat's practice in Atlanta, Georgia is devoted to women’s wellness. In addition to the highest quality of surgical skill, Dr. Nezhat offers patients his expertise in hormone therapy and reproductive medicine. While his primary focus is patient care, he is widely sought after for teaching and lecturing. He has conducted many courses on laparoscopic surgery worldwide and regularly performs medical volunteer work in the U.S. and under-developed countries. Dr. Nezhat serves on the volunteer faculty as a Clinical Associate Professor at Emory University School of Medicine and Stanford University School of Medicine. He has co-authored two text-books and over 100 book chapters and articles. He has received numerous awards for his teaching and educational activities. He is a member of many distinguished societies, reviewer for several academic journals, and advisor to teaching organizations.
