“There are so few surgical specialties that allow you to perform surgery and then treat your patients on an ongoing basis through chemotherapy and surveillance. The ability to have long-lasting relationships and offer continuity of care is the reason I chose gynecologic oncology as my specialty that combines advanced pelvic surgery and medical oncology. Providing this comprehensive approach of management, with ongoing care for my patients based on most current medical research, is extraordinarily satisfying. Most importantly, I believe my patients deserve to receive personalized care as if they were my family“
Born and raised in Miami, Dr. Salom earned his medical degree at The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine as part of a seven-year joint college-medical school program. He also completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology and his fellowship in gynecologic oncology at The University of Miami, Jackson Memorial Hospital and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Dr. Emery M. Salom is one of only a few in the country to be triple Board-Certified in Gynecologic Oncology, Gynecology, and Female Pelvic and Reconstructive Surgery/Urogynecology.
Dr. Salom is expertly trained to perform minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, treat gynecologic cancers, complex gynecologic conditions including endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic pain, pelvic prolapse, urinary incontinence, management of postoperative complications and reconstructive pelvic procedure.
Extraordinarily professional yet caring, warm, and sensitive is how he is described by patients who repeatedly share how Dr. Salom inspires confidence while making them feel like family. His training and expertise in three board-certified specialties add to his credibility as a skilled and highly-recommended provider in the medical community.
Dr. Salom is a passionate academic and believes academics and research are the cornerstones to providing relevant and current medical management. He is the author of five book chapters, 37 publications and more than 100 presentations and abstracts. For the past 10 years, Dr. Salom has served both as the inaugural obstetrics and gynecology clerkship director and associate professor at Florida International University. Balancing a busy practice and coordinating the academic and clinical experience for third and fourth-year students in hospitals and office settings can be challenging. But Dr. Salom raised the bar by developing an accredited gynecologic fellowship at The Center for Gynecologic Oncology under the auspices of The Society of Laparoscopic & Robotic Surgeons.
