Due to Dr. Farr Nezhat’s unique credentials, you can get everything done under one roof. For example, let’s say your endometriosis treatment requires surgery across multiple organs – Dr. Nezhat has the skill and expertise to operate not only on the uterus and ovaries, but also on the bowel, bladder, lungs, and other organs. This makes it easier for you to obtain the care you deserve without booking multiple appointments and undergoing surgeries with various specialists.

Some of Dr. Farr Nezhat’s specific skills and credentials include:

Endometriosis specialization

Under the experienced care of Dr. Farr Nezhat, patients gain a clear diagnosis of the disease stage and its involvement across all organs, including the uterus, ovaries, bowel, bladder, and lungs.

Oncology specialization

As one of the best gynecologic oncologists in New York, Dr. Farr Nezhat efficiently classifies what stage your reproductive cancer is at. This is critical to your cancer treatment and management.

Fertility specialization

Protecting and preserving fertility is important for many women. Dr. Farr Nezhat effectively treats gynecological diseases while sparing the patient’s reproductive organs.

Minimally invasive surgery

Dr. Farr Nezhat’s minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeries lead to shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, reduced pain, fewer complications, and outstanding cosmetic results.

The bottom line? Many of the best endometriosis specialists in the world lack the credentials and skill to operate on multiple organs of the body like the bowel, bladder, ureter, and lungs. This may result in your condition not being adequately treated, leading to further surgeries down the line.

Thanks to Dr. Farr Nezhat’s unique credentials, he can operate and remove endometriosis across all organs of the body while also treating complex gynecological conditions – there’s a reason the Nezhat Surgery for Gynecology/Oncology is known as one of the best endometriosis specialists in New York and the world.

The Right Choice

You deserve the right gynecologic oncologist for you

As a woman, finding a gynecologic oncologist that can meet your complex medical needs is one of the best things you can do for your health. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done: the number of available gynecologic oncologists per patient worldwide is astonishingly low. This causes women experiencing gynecological issues to go directly to regular gynecologists (OB/GYNs) or general surgeons for treatment.

A general surgeon may be unaware of the challenging, complex, and multidisciplinary nature of gynecological diseases, while a regular gynecologist may lack the surgical capabilities required to treat the issues. In both cases, patients run the risk of unnecessary and/or unsuccessful surgeries that require corrective surgery later.

A gynecologic oncologist, on the other hand, is a physician first trained in obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN), with an additional three to four years of training in gynecologic cancers including advanced surgery techniques and chemotherapy administration and radiation. These gynecologic oncology specialists use their skills to treat cancers of the female reproductive system as well as complex benign conditions. Data shows that patients operated on by gynecologic oncologists have significantly better outcomes.

At the Nezhat Surgery for Gynecology/Oncology, one of our primary goals is to expand the access to gynecologic oncology in New York and for patients across the globe.
