Questions & Answers with Dr Mutayyab Shah​​

My aim is to provide you with the very best medical outcome possible in a discreet, respectful and informative environment.

I had role models who inspired me to follow in their direction. They trained me well and I still seek to live up to their expectations. It is my driving force. 

For some, pregnancy and birth can be an anxious time so my aim is to take away some of that if I can and give women the confidence and comfort to trust that they and their new baby will be well looked after, what ever the setting. This is what I enjoy most. 

You must work hard to deliver the skills needed for the speciality. Excelling at what you do will make all the difference in the lives of your patients to be that of life-long joy.

Becoming a new Mum is a huge life change, so be kind to yourself.

Robotic Surgery

Dr. Mutayyab Shah​​ offers robotically-assisted gynaecologic surgery at Gosford Private Hospital.

Procedures performed include hysterectomy, ovarian cystectomy, and excision of endometriosis for certain women.

The state-of-the-art da Vinci Xi surgical system offers a variety of advantages over traditional laparoscopy; however, both are considered minimally-invasive surgery.  The surgeon performs the majority of the procedure from the robotic console.  Compared to laparoscopy, the robot offers increased range of motion, improved dexterity, and enhanced visualisation, which is especially critical when working around delicate pelvic structures. 

Patients are often able to go home after a short stay in hospital, and most women report little or no significant pain after surgery.
