Dr. Nadia Gomez, an assistant professor of gynecology and director of the minimally invasive gynecology surgery division at the UNLV School of Medicine, became in 2015 the first female physician to perform robotic benign gynecological surgery at University Medical Center, where she is currently the vice chair of the robotics committee.
Dr. Gomez is now one of the principal investigators assembled from across the country conducting a FDA 36 month study into the safety and efficacy of Essure, a sterilization procedure developed in part to avoid the risk associated with the surgery and general anesthesia used in women having their “tubes tied,” the common term for tubal ligation.
