Personal Statement

Dr. Xiaoming Guan is the Division chief and fellowship director of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Texas Children’s and a professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Guan earned his medical degree at Fujian Medical College, Fuzhou, in Fujian, China. He completed his obstetrics and gynecology residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital, a Mount Sinai School of Medicine affiliated hospital in Paterson, NJ, followed by a fellowship in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Dr. Guan brings extensive experience in treating complex and challenging cases of all stage’s endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and pelvic masses. He is a leader in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and a pioneer in the use of state-of-the-art robotic single-site technology and traditional single-site and transvaginal Natural Orifice Endoscopy Surgery (NOTES) for advanced pelvic surgery. He also applies a single-site or NOTES surgical technique in treating cervical incompetence with abdominal cerclage, chronic pelvic pain with endometriosis, urinary incontinence with a sling, and pelvic organ prolapse with sacrocolpopexy. Dr. Guan makes multiple disciplinary team efforts (colorectal surgeon, thoracic surgeon, urologist) in surgical treatment of advanced endometriosis (bowel, chest, urology) for better patient care. He serves on the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology editorial boards, and he is the author of more than 80 publications.
