Whether our peers or our elders, just because the women we love are strong enough to endure, we should not let them suffer needlessly a single day more when safe, minimally invasive treatment options are available to make their lives better. <3 Help break the taboo and share awareness that Dr. Labib Riachi is here to help.

"The robotic surgery team at Trinitas Regional Medical Center, led by Dr. Labib E. Riachi, was recently recognized by Intuitive Surgical as the busiest surgical center in NJ for robotic gynecological surgery. Intuitive Surgical, manufacturer of the daVinci Robotic Surgery system, also reported that the robotic procedures performed by Dr. Riachi at Trinitas are “among the most complex and challenging cases being done today.” "

Dr. Riachi Recognized as No 1 Robotic Surgeon in NJ and listed top 1% in the US! The procedures he performs are among the most complex and challenging cases being done today. Dr. Riachi's expert use of robotic surgery - with its greater precision, quicker heal rates and reduced surgical trauma - reflects his exceptional commitment to his patients.

'In our modern world, with so many ways to share information, experiences and feelings, it sometimes seems as if there is nothing women can’t (or won’t) talk about. As Dr. Labib Riachi knows all too well, this is far from true. His waiting room at Trinitas Regional Medical Center is packed with women, young and old, who suffer from conditions ranging from advanced urinary incontinence to bladder, vaginal and rectal prolapse, which are caused by a weakening of the internal pelvic support structures.
[ http://www.edgemagonline.com/teaching_global.htm ]
They enter Dr. Riachi’s urogynecology office ashamed and desperate. They depart with the smiles that come with knowing that they are hardly alone...and that they have come to the right place.
Dr. Riachi has pioneered Total Vaginal Mesh Plasty (TVM), a procedure that corrects prolapse under regional anesthesia. The success rate compares to that of traditional surgeries, which involve a much more invasive abdominal incision. TVM takes a far less invasive approach; patients typically can return home within 24 hours and resume normal activities much quicker than if they had undergone traditional surgery. “TVM corrects a condition that steals from women their dignity,” Dr. Riachi explains. “Often the physical discomfort of prolapse is nothing compared to the emotional pain and embarrassment. The subject is so taboo that patients will keep it to themselves for years rather than seeking treatment.”

Of equal taboo to women is stress urinary incontinence – the leaking of urine that takes place when the woman coughs, sneezes, or even laughs. “This is a condition that has no boundaries. I’ve treated a 22-year-old mother who had just given birth, all the way up to a 97-year-old woman who has lived with the condition for many years,” he explains.

Stress urinary incontinence is also treated with a minimally invasive surgical technique by Dr. Riachi. “The TVTObturator (TVT-O) procedure has allowed thousands of women in New Jersey to be relieved of the burden of incontinence. With a five-minute procedure we can solve a problem that many have endured for years,” he states. During TVT-O surgery a small piece of synthetic material is used to create a “sling” that provides crucial support of the mid urethra. The success rate is in excess of 90 percent, and the patient can typically return home just a few hours following surgery.

More than 500 surgeons from throughout the world have been trained by Dr. Riachi to perform both the TVM and TVT-O procedures.'

In 2005, Dr. Riachi performed the 1st TVM procedure ever in NJ and only the 4th in the US!
'Vaginal prolapse is a weakness of the supporting structures of the uterus, pelvic floor and vagina. This condition affects up to 30-40% of all women, often as the result of childbirth, menopause or hereditary genetic predisposition. ...Patient M. Wallack spoke to members of he media on the day she was discharged from Trinitas following surgery to correct prolapse. "Two days ago I didn't think I would feel as good as I do now. I was in denial for so long, and now I'm so glad I had this procedure."'

Don't let pelvic organ prolapse direct the course of your life activities!.. “They said I’d have to have my cervix removed and give up running,” she recalls. “That didn’t feel right to me. That’s when I called Dr. Riachi.” http://www.edgemagonline.com/health64.htm
Dr. Labib Riachi, Chairman, OB/GYN, and Director of Robotics at Trinitas Regional Medical Center, had treated O’Connor-McLellan for a separate condition in 2009, using a robotics-assisted procedure that she says resulted in a smoother-than-anticipated recuperation. The surgical scars were practically unnoticeable, and the discomfort was minimal. After a phone call to Dr. Riachi, she boarded a plane back to New Jersey, consulted with him at his office, and was scheduled for surgery the next day. Once again, the robotics-assisted procedure delivered results.
...
“I call him the rock star,” O’Connor-McLellan says. “I would still go back to New Jersey if I needed another procedure, and I recommend anyone else to make that trip as well.
I wouldn’t trust anyone else; I wouldn’t put my health in anyone else’s hands. I feel that strongly about what he can do, and about robotics in surgery. People shouldn’t be afraid of it. The healing is incredible.”
