Dr. Parker is a highly skilled gynecologic surgeon. He has spent many years in extensive post-residency training in order to achieve special expertise in advanced laparoscopic, hysteroscopic and fibroid surgery. Dr. Parker began performing operative laparoscopic procedures in 1987 and has been performing laparoscopic myomectomies for nearly 30 years. He has been teaching these techniques to other gynecologists since 1990 and is an internationally recognized expert in fibroid surgery and research. Dr. Parker is considered one of the best fibroid surgeons for laparoscopic or abdominal myomectomy in the United States and abroad and is able to perform laparoscopic myomectomy surgery with minimal blood loss, a short time under anesthesia for the patient, and with consistently good outcomes.

What makes Dr. Parker such a distinctive and outstanding gynecologist is that in addition to being interested in and especially knowledgeable about the evaluation of problems related to uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and general gynecologic surgery, he is a recognized expert at performing all of the available gynecologic treatments and surgery.

Dr. Parker has superb skills and experience in performing laparoscopic myomectomy, abdominal myomectomy of large fibroids and hysteroscopic myomectomy. Dr. Parker has a great deal of experience in laparoscopic supra-cervical hysterectomy and total laparoscopic hysterectomy and frequently teaches other gynecologists who are trying to learn these difficult surgical techniques. He encourages women to retain their ovaries unless family history or personal issues dictate otherwise.

Dr. Parker’s philosophy is surgically conservative, and he often recommends either minimally invasive surgical options or non-surgical treatment of gynecologic problems. For consultations regarding your gynecologic problem, please contact UC San Diego Health, 858-657-8745.
