Meet The Doctor

Obstetrician Gynecologist Luis J. López-Benítez, MD, FACOG

The reason I enjoy my profession now is the same reason I chose Gynecology many years ago; there is no greater joy than helping women through all their stages in life. I am grateful to all my patients for allowing me the privilege of being their physician

Dr. Luis López-Benítez was born in Puerto Rico. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He got his bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus. He studied medicine, and completed his internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine, where he practiced at the Caribbean’s busiest Medical Center. There, Dr. López-Benítez had extensive exposure to high risk obstetric patients referred to their unit from all over the island, as well as from some of the US Virgin Islands. In addition, he had plenty of exposure to complex gynecologic surgery, principally due to the scarcity of gynecologic oncology services in the island. He has been practicing in Las Vegas since 2007.

In order to provide more personalized care to his patients, Dr. López-Benítez decided to open his solo practice in the North West of the Valley. Dr. López-Benítez has special interest in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, and does most of his surgeries robotically assisted with the da Vinci Surgical System. He understands that most surgeries that have traditionally been done as open cases (laparotomy) can be done laparoscopically. There are some exceptions, but this applies to most hysterectomies and sterilizations (tubal ligations) among others.

Dr. López-Benítez is a proctor for Intuitive Surgical, which gives him the opportunity to travel across the country teaching other gynecologists how to properly use robotic surgery on their patients.  He is also an attending physician for the Mountain View Hospital Ob/Gyn Residency Program, helping the new generation of gynecologists develop adequate surgical skills for the future. Dr. López-Benítez has medical and surgical privileges at Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center, and Mountain View Hospital Medical Center.

Dr. López-Benítez enjoys traveling, swimming and baseball.
