Robotic Surgery Expert Dr. Ramin Mirhashemi, MD of Gynecological Oncology Associates Introduces His Brand New Website,

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  Dr. Ramin Mirhashemi, MD, FACOG, of Gynecological Oncology Associates realized he needed to have an online presence and branding for his practice. With the help of Aurora Information Technology, his website is the ultimate medical resource for his patients. Dr. Mirhashemi is an expert in robotic surgery, which he performs to treat gynecologic cancers including uterine, ovarian, cervical, and vaginal cancers, as well as fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian tumors and pelvic prolapse (robotic sacrocolpopexy, robotic hysterectomy and robotic myomectomy).

The domain name,, was devised to encompass the practice and the region served. A fun and bright website design with an animated banner incorporating the fresh, new logo on the home page houses a wealth of information on topics in Dr. Mirhashemi's overall gynecological expertise, including gynecologic oncology and robotic surgery. Mirhashemi developed techniques to perform these surgeries through robotic laparoscopic techniques. The robotic procedure is more accurate and minimally invasive, due to smaller incisions. Patients experience less pain and usually recover in about 1 week.

Dr. Mirhashemi, who has the largest experience in robotic surgery for gynecologic conditions "west of the Mississippi," is a subject matter expert who has published over 60 journal articles, research articles and book chapters in regards to women's health. Mirhashemi attended Medical School at the University of Southern California and completed his internship and residency at the Brigham and Women's Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard Medical School. He received his fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Miami. To his credit, he is a former Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UCLA School of Medicine, and the University of Miami School of Medicine, as well as the Director of the Familial Breast and Ovarian Cancer Genetic Center at the University of Miami School of Medicine.

Because Dr. Mirhashemi is dedicated to improving women's health via comprehensive gynecology, gynecologic oncology, and urogynecologic services, his mission for the website was to provide as much information as possible regarding the most common female medical conditions as well as treatment options. Mirhashemi believes in the efficiency of state-of-the-art robotic surgery in gynecology. "Because large abdominal incisions are not needed with the da Vinci robot that is used in robotic surgery, my patients recover much faster than with traditional open surgery, that requires these larger incisions," explained Mirhashemi. "With robotic surgery, most of patients are discharged within 24 hours of their operations, with fewer complications."

The site provides patient information such as physician/practice background, patient testimonials and hospital affiliations. In order to constantly improve the patient experience, the site features an online patient questionnaire that captures patient feedback on their experience with the practice. "My practice is patient-focused and their cure and satisfaction go hand-in-hand," explained Dr. Mirhashemi. "If we've managed to do both successfully, and provide the value-add of medical information and education, then we've done our job well."
