Camran Nezhat, M.D. is an internationally renowned Laparoscopic Surgeon, Scientist and Innovator at Stanford University Medical Center. He has been practicing medicine and surgery at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto since 1993. He is the Deputy Chief of the Department of OB/GYN, Clinical Professor of Surgery and Clinic Professor of OB/GYN at Stanford University Medical Center in Palo Alto, California. He is also the Clinical Professor of OB/GYN at the University of California in San Francisco, California and the Director for the Center for Special Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgey in Palo Alto, California. He is the pioneer and leading practitioner in the field of laparoscopic surgery, specializing in laparoscopic treatment of severe endometriosis involving multiple organs, management of infertility, myomas of the uterus, and other pelvic diseases. He is the forerunner of starting to operate on the video monitor rather than looking through the eyepiece of the laparoscope. This technique (video laparoscopy) revolutionized operative laparoscopy in all the disciplines of surgery. He has been instrumental in modifying many established procedures performed by laparotomy to laparoscopy, with similar or improved results. Dr. Nezhat has extensive experience in hysteroscopic surgery and he routinely performs hysteroscopic procedures for congenital abnormalities of the uterus, like septate uterus, myomas of the uterus, and endometrial ablation.
