Joseph Gauta, MD First Area Gynecologist to Perform LESS Procedure



February 10, 2010, Naples, Florida - Joseph Gauta, MD, FACOG recently performed the first gynecological procedure in the region utilizing revolutionary new technology and a technique called Laparo-Endoscopic Single Site (LESS) surgery at Naples Day Surgery center in Naples, Florida.

What makes this procedure so unique is that unlike the traditional laparoscopes or even DaVinci Robotic tools, which both require three to five separate incisions to access the abdomen, LESS surgery is performed entirely through one small incision located within the bellybutton.

Dr Gauta, who is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons said, “The obvious advantage with LESS is that there is no visible scar after recovery and with only one entry point, our patients may experience less blood loss, quicker recovery, and fewer post-surgical complications.” He added, “This procedure may be a good alternative for many women in our region who are facing hysterectomy, ovarian cysts, fibroids and other types of gynecological problems requiring surgical intervention.”

Dr. Gauta is the founder of the Naples-based obstetrics and gynecology practice Especially for Women and the Florida Bladder Institute. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Lewis I. Post Award for Surgical Excellence. He added, “Our team looks forward to helping women find the best possible solution to treat their problem and provide the care and support they deserve.”
