In April 1998, Dr. Shapiro was recruited to be the chief of the obstetrical and gynecological divisor of ProHEALTH care associates, LLP, a large multi specially medical group that included approximately 100 providers. At the completion of five years as division chief, he founded Women’s Health and Wellness, a full service Ob-Gyn medical practice and a state of the art medical spa with two locations.
Dr. Shapiro along with maintaining an active obstetrical and gynecological medical and surgical practice, he is an associate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and is certified to perform botox injections, dermal fillers, IPL hair removal and fotofacial treatments as well as sclerotherapy.
Dr. Shapiro is also a pioneer in the field of non surgical treatment for uterine fibroids. The newest treatment, FDA approved in October 2004, is a procedure called ExAblate which uses MRI guided focused ultrasound to treat the fibroids while the patient is awake and able to return to normal activity the following day.
