Since starting practice in 1995, Dr. George Shashoua has been a pioneer in the treatment of urogynecology conditions, such as urinary incontinence, perineal descent, and pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, enterocele, and/or rectocele). While practicing OBGYN for 16 years, he found his passion in urogynecology procedures and branched off to start his own practice, in 2010, focusing solely on female pelvic reconstructive surgery. He was early to adopt the use of the Da Vinci robot, starting in 2007. With this minimally invasive approach to surgery, the rate of success in prolapse procedures has climbed from under 50% to over 90%.
Dr. Shashoua started his own practice in 2010. The following year, he partnered with Dr. Koushik Shaw. That same year, in 2011, the practice progressed from paper to electronic charting! The clinic quickly grew and ran out of rooms to convert to offices or exam rooms. After researching the optimal setup for a state of the art, modern, comfortable clinic, Dr. Shashoua decided to take on the building of a new clinic from the ground up. We were able to have unique input on the frontend from developing a relaxing waiting area to modern patient bathrooms, flushable sinks, and some local art and the color scheme. In 2012, the clinic was complete and we moved in and on to the new era of Austin Urogynecology. Dr. Shashoua was not only on the cutting edge of surgical practices, he was practicing and advancing in his techniques before the board certification existed for Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). Once FPMRS became a recognized subspecialty, Dr. Shashoua was among the first doctors to become board certified in FPMRS.
With excellent patient outcomes and feedback as well as a dedicated team, we have continued to grow over the years. In 2016, Kristin Longshore, ARNP-BC joined Austin Urogynecology, giving us the versatility and capacity of a three-provider practice. Today they are joined by Julianna Monceaux, FNP-BC. Dr. Shashoua has worked closely over the years to train his nurse practitioners and clinical staff to ensure everyone has an expert level of understanding of urogynecology conditions, treatments, and the nuances of patient care.
