Dr. Paul Magtibay specializes in gynecologic oncology and urogynecology. He also specializes in robotic surgical procedures. This is a particular type of laparoscopic procedure which allows minimally invasive surgery requiring only small incisions. The robot lends greater accuracy in laparoscopic dissection.

Robotic surgery allows three dimensional viewing, rather than the standard two dimensional view. Unlike other laparoscopic equipment, robotics instruments articulate which allow for greater dexterity and precision.
