Dr. Jamie Lipeles and Dr. Hope Vermaire, of Marina OB/GYN in Marina Del Rey and Hawthorne, California, are among the very small number of OB/GYNs in Los Angeles with extensive experience in performing hysterectomies with the state-of-the-art da Vinci Robotic Surgical System®. Dr. Lipeles and Dr. Vermaire have performed literally hundreds of hysterectomies via the da Vinci system with impeccable results for women throughout Marina Del Rey, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Venice, Westchester, El Segundo, Playa Vista, Culver City and the greater South Bay area.
A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of part of all of a woman’s reproductive organs. Women who undergo a hysterectomy are no longer able to become pregnant. A hysterectomy is used to treat a range of gynecological issues, including: pelvic pain, fibroids, heavy/painful periods, adenomyosis, pelvic inflammatory disease and cancer.
Dr. Lipeles is one of a very few gynecologists in the greater West Los Angeles area with extensive experience in performing hysterectomies utilizing the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System. While it is truly the most advanced approach, delivering the best results for this surgery, the learning curve in performing hysterectomies with robotic assistance is steep. This is why so few OB/GYNs provide robotic-assisted hysterectomies and also why patients should always select a surgeon who has extensive experience in using this technology. Not only has Dr. Lipeles performed hundreds of hysterectomies with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, he also teaches other physician how to use this sophisticated approach.

I am actually pregnant again (yay!) and I will be going back to this office throughout my pregnancy. They're amazing, and I had a great experience.
He delivered my baby and both baby and I are healthy. I was up and walking right after the delivery and healed perfectly so I couldn't be happier!
He performed the surgery with a robot so recovery was not bad. His staff was extremely helpful and pleasant.
The staff are amazing, very friendly and helpful. I'm definitely going to keep coming here for check ups and birth control because I love it that much. I would recommend
Nervous about the delivery all the anxiety disappeared the second the doc walked into the room. My hubby loved visiting as much as I did!
Dr. Lipeles was gentle and kind (First Male ObGyn experience for me). He was hilarious with bedside manner and actually had me laughing throughout the entire experience.
Dr. Lipeles is so caring and went above and beyond my expectations for a family centered birth. His office is beautifully remodeled and spotlessly clean.
Amazing!! Dr. Lipeles is the best!! He and all the doctors, nurses and office staff are wonderful. Thanks Doc for all your help!
