Background:

Dr. Robert Asgharian grew up in Austin, Texas.  He completed his undergraduate degree at UT-Austin in computer science in 1991.  Having worked for three years as a software engineer and project leader at IBM, he decided to pursue more interesting things and went off to medical school at Texas Tech University School of Medicine.  He completed his 2 basic science years in Lubbock, Texas and his 2 clinical years in El Paso.  It was during these clinical years that he developed a strong bond with El Paso and its friendly community.

Dr. Asgharian completed his specialty residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at John Peter Smith Hospital in Forth Worth, Texas.  Much of his advanced surgical skill set, education and expertise was guided  by the supervision and training of advanced urogynecological surgeons, urologists and minimally invasive surgeons who were renowned and at the forefront of their field.

In 2013, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology offered a vigorous testing and credentialing  process to evaluate the experience, training, expertise of select gynecologists with experience in and training in urogynecology and provide them recognition and certification of this expertise. As such, Dr. Asgharian became one of the first surgeons in the country with this official board certification of  Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery.

Professional Activity:

In 2002, Dr. Asgharian founded Avante Womens’ Health in El Paso, Texas.  This was a institution dedicated to the minimally invasive treatment of women with gynecological disorders.  Much of his practice in these years has been concentrated on treating women with pelvic disorders, incontinence, overactive bladder, minimally invasive surgery which includes both robotic and laparoscopic surgery.  Indeed, he developed a national reputation in Robotic Surgery and has trained physicians at a national level in Robotic Surgery.

During his years of practice,  he has performed thousands of incontinence surgeries, robotic surgeries, laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgeries,  and surgeries for pelvic prolapse.  Additionally, he has taken care of more rare and advanced urogynecological conditions such as fistulas, fecal incontinence, diverticuli, and mesh complications.

He has trained both gynecologists and urologists locally and on a national level in advanced gynecological surgery, surgical treatment of incontinence and pelvic prolapse.  Also, he has served as surgical industry consultant and advanced trainer/preceptor for companies including but not limited to American Medical Systems, Boston Scientic, Gyrus/Olympus, Cooper Surgical, and Intuitive.
