American Hospital Dubai appoints Board Certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist with a specialist interest in Advanced Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic Surgery 16 Dec 2013 The American Hospital Dubai has appointed Dr. Anthony Brignoni, an Obstetrician & Gynecologist Board Certified by the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (FACOG), to the Hospital’s Obstetrics and Gynecology team, which now comprises five doctors. Dr. Brignoni is trained, certified and specializes in a range of advanced surgical techniques including laparoscopic surgery (or minimally invasive surgery) in which the surgeon performs a surgical procedure through a very small incision which reduces patient discomfort, risk of infection and scarring, and speeds up the recovery process. Dr. Brignoni graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in Biology and obtained his medical degree at the Ponce School of Medicine, in Ponce, Puerto Rico. He completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York Infirmary-Beekman Downtown Hospital in New York, N.Y.. Dr Brignoni has been in private practice since 1991. Joined the staff of Peace River Regional Medical Center and, the Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte, Florida in 1991. He opened the Brignoni Cosmetogynecology Center in Port Charlotte, in 2005. Dr. Brignoni has delivered more than 6,000 babies and has performed thousands of gynecological surgeries and cosmetic procedures. He is certified in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery - a minimally invasive procedure that greatly reduces recovery time and minimizes surgical risks. In addition Dr. Brignoni is skilled in Pelvic Reconstructive surgery for Pelvic Organ Prolapse, and Urine incontinence (Urogynecology) and Vaginal rejuvenation procedures. In addition, Dr. Brignoni is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist, the American Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and, the International Society of Cosmetogynecology. Commenting on the new appointment, Mr David Farrick, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the American Hospital Dubai, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Dr Brignoni to our medical team; he brings outstanding qualifications and a broad range of very valuable skills to our growing team in the obstetrics and gynecology clinic. His special interest in the key area of minimally invasive surgery adds another dimension to our extensive range of clinical offerings in this important area of our work and offers significant benefits to our patients.”
