Dr. Eads has extensive training and experience in minimally invasive (laparoscopic and hysteroscopic) surgery. He trained with Dr. Kurt Semm in 1986. Dr. Semm was a pioneer in operative laparoscopy and invented many of the instruments used today. He trained in lasers with Dr. Joseph Feste at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He has continued to adopt the newest surgical procedures and has performed over 3000 laparoscopies. He is fully certified on the da Vinci robot. This $1.7 million machine at Memorial Hermann Hospital The Woodlands allows many more safe advanced laparoscopic procedures. Even though this is called a robot, it is entirely controlled by Dr. Eads. He is a proctor for the da Vinci surgical robot and travels throughout Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Georgia, and Florida teaching this revolutionary technique to other doctors. He is the head of the Southwestern Gynecologic Epicenter for da Vinci surgery. Dr. Eads is the Epicenter physician for the entire state of Texas. He has physicians fly in to observe his techniques and then he flys to their hospitals to proctor them. He has performed more da Vinci cases than anyone in the entire Houston area.
He has over 25 years of experience in pelvic reconstructive surgery, including the newest meshes and techniques. This includes training at Georgetown University in Virginia. These techniques have revolutionized the treatment of pelvic prolapse and urinary incontinence for long-term success.
