Dr. Fadi Abu Shahin believes the best outcome for women with cancer is achieved through an educated partnership between the treating physician and the patient. It is essential to provide women with potential or diagnosed cancer a clear knowledge of their disease and all aspects of the available treatment options. Dr. Abu Shahin is trained in minimally invasive surgery and state-of-the-art robotic surgery for the treatment of gynecologic malignancies. He is also a pioneer in adopting single incision (scarless) laparoscopic surgery in Southwest Florida. His special interest and experience in basic and clinical research allows him to offer his patients access to current clinical trials emphasizing the most advanced treatment options and technologies. His background in palliative care allows a broader approach in fighting cancer while maintaining good quality of life and symptom control.
