Working with select physicians over the years, Dr. Rotman and the OBIE team have developed and advanced several important surgical techniques and procedures that have found widespread acceptance, as well as advanced instruments to simplify complex maneuvers. Among the most well-known are:
Developed by Dr. Harrith Hasson and Dr. Carlos Rotman in the 1980's, the modified technique is now one of the most commonly used in the world, due in great part to its reduction in risk to the patient. Click here to watch a video demonstrating this technique.
Looking for a way to improve specimen removal during laparoscopy, Dr. Rotman developed the SLAM Technique in the 1990's. Since then, SLAM has proven its value in a number of laparoscopic procedures. OBIE associate Dr. Carlos Sueldo and his team presented an analysis of Dr. Rotman's SLAM Technique at the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2003 Annual Meeting, demonstrating its superiority to costly and traumatic electric morcellation in laparoscopic myomectomies.

We have one of the largest academically published series on Laparoscopic Reversal of Tubal Ligation Sterilization in the world, and our minimally-invasive surgical techniques have resulted in outstanding success rates. Please click here for more information and to view an instructional video.
Our presentation of the minimally-invasive Laparoscopic Multiple Myomectomy as an Alternative to Hysterectomy was recently awarded First Place at the 2009 ACOG Film Festival. Please click here for more information and to view an extended version of the award-winning video.
We believe this technique should be the first approach to the treatment of Tubal Factor Infertility because of its superior outcomes and cost effectiveness when compared to IVF-ET. Please click here for more information and to view an instructional video.
While working with Dr. Harrith Hasson, new operative procedures demanded the creation and development of new techniques and instrumentation. These challenges resulted in the introduction of the Stable Access Cannula (SAC) to facilitate introduction and improve stabilization of laparoscopic instruments.
Knot tying is an important but surprisingly difficult technique to master. Dr. Rotman created the Easy-Knot Tying Forceps to facilitate this crucial task. Please click here for more information.
OBIE is in the final stages of bringing to market a device that will greatly facilitate the cannulation of the fallopian tube without the need for hysteroscopy. A prototype of the device may be seen in use beginning at time marker 3:36 in this video.
