About Peter A Khamvongsa, FACOG, FACS, IF

Meet Dr. Khamvongsa

The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery is a full-service women’s health resource serving women of all ages from in the greater Miami area. Under the leadership of Peter Khamvongsa, MD, FACOG, FACS, IF, the practice offers services ranging from comprehensive well-woman exams to complex robotic surgery procedures. 

Far too many women place their own health needs at the end of a lengthy and seemingly endless to-do list. It is not possible to overstate how important solid women’s health care is, and Dr. Khamvongsa has gone to great lengths to create a practice that is warm, welcoming, and staffed with professionals who truly care about each patient’s experience. 

Dr. Khamvongsa recruited some of the region’s best medical support and administrative staff to keep The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery running smoothly. From the time the initial appointment is booked through treatment and beyond, patients can rest assured they are in the best of hands. 

Technology is also a central focus at The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery. Diagnostic and treatment services are performed using state-of-the-art medical technology, and even the scheduling and recordkeeping systems represent the best the industry has to offer. The staff attends ongoing training to learn how to leverage these tools to their greatest advantage. 

Some of the platforms used at The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery include the TruClear™ hysteroscopic tissue removal system, the da VinciⓇ surgical system, MyoSureⓇ, and NovaSureⓇ, Acessa™, and SonataⓇ. 

Services range from routine well-woman exams and obstetrics to the treatment of fibroids, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, abnormal bleeding, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, and menopause. 

When needed, patients receive a comprehensive evaluation and customized treatment plans. Each need is managed fully from start to finish, with the support of Dr. Khamvongsa and The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery team. 

Dr. Khamvongsa also understands the importance of feeling confident in one’s skin. He decided to add medical aesthetics services to his practice to give women access to the latest treatments and help them feel great about their appearance. Options include BotoxⓇ, RestylaneⓇ, and products from the JuvédermⓇ line of dermal fillers. 

The Miami Institute of Urogynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery is currently accepting new patients. Schedule an appointment online or by phone for a one-on-one consultation and an opportunity to meet the team. Services are available in English, French, and Spanish.
