He went on to The University of Dallas in Irving, Texas where he received a liberal arts education including a six-month study in Rome, Italy. Graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1989, Dr. Giannotti began his medical studies at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston where he graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society in 1993.

Having joined Women's Healthcare Affiliates in 1998, Dr. Giannotti continues to care for the patients in the community where he grew up. His practice includes the full scope of obstetrics and gynecology.

Dr. Giannotti is certified to perform robotic surgery using the DaVinci Robotic Surgical System for both exploratory surgery as well as definitive surgery such as hysterectomy. This minimally invasive surgical technique allows patients to return to normal daily activity much more quickly than traditional methods. Utilizing DaVinci "Firefly" technology has also allowed him to evaluate and treat endometriosis more thoroughly than traditional laparoscopic methods have been able to in the past.
As a Clinical Assistant Professor and faculty member of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, Dr. Giannotti actively trains postgraduate medical residents in the use of the DaVinci robotic surgical system.
