Physician Profile

Dr. Shaban is a board-certified reproductive urologist who, for 15 years, had served on the University of North Carolina School of Medicine faculty where he was a Clinical Professor of Surgery/Urology and assistant chief of the urology division. In 2004, he went into private practice.

Dr. Shaban is committed to providing the highest caliber care for all his patients. Over the past decade, he has built a reputation for practicing evidence-based medicine with integrity. He has a long history of working locally and nationally with reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, urologists, and primary care providers to provide couples comprehensive, state-of-the-art Male Factor Infertility diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Shaban uses the most innovative and effective procedures and surgical techniques. In fact, there are a number of practice areas like microsurgical vasectomy reversals, microsurgical varicocele repair, reconstructive surgery for obstructive azoospermia, surgical sperm harvesting, and no-scalpel vasectomies, where he has more experience than most urologists in North Carolina and the southeastern United States.

Dr. Shaban received his MD degree from The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, followed by a residency in urology at the University of South Florida Hospitals in Tampa. He went on to complete a nationally recognized postdoctoral fellowship in Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at Baylor of College of Medicine in Houston. He has served as President of the Durham-Orange County Medical Society and the Carolina Urological Association, and is a charter member of The Society for the Study of Male Reproduction with the American Urological Association.

Dr. Shaban enjoys putting people at ease and is sensitive to his patients’ psychological well-being. His approach to patient care is to respect your time and past experiences and to put your welfare first at all times. In doing so, he acts as a patient advocate and demands quality care, respect of your dignity and minimizes system complexities. Furthermore, he is committed to reviewing all of your options, not just the ones he can provide. In recognition of his work, he has repeatedly been voted one of America’s Top Doctors® , The Best Doctor’s in America® , Business North Carolina’s Premier Practitioners, Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award, and Top 10 Doctor.
