Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Leonardo Catalano, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. is a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist practicing in Pembroke Pines, Florida. He received his medical degree from Ponce School of Medicine and Health Sciences in 2009 and later completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at San Juan City Hospital.
Dr. Catalano specializes in minimally invasive robotic surgery for complicated gynecological issues including pelvic surgery, labiaplasty and vaginal reconstruction and is one of the few physicians who provide adolescent gynecological services. He says that he always knew he wanted to do something in a field that included surgery and when asked why he chose obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Catalano responded with, “This specialty allows me to care for patients throughout their lifespan, from adolescence through childbearing years and well beyond.”
With new technology, such as Davinci robot, physicians like Dr. Catalano are able to perform minimally invasive procedures, which offer patients a faster recovery time allowing women to get back to their normal lifestyle sooner.
Dr. Catalano holds hospital privileges at Affiliate Hospital and Memorial Hospital West. He speaks fluent in English and Spanish, allowing him to communicate clearly with many patients, which certainly helps put them at ease.
We are proud to have him on our team at Gentle OB/GYN offering professional and personal Obstetrical and Gynecological care.
