Summary

  • I am Board Certified in Urogynecology and Ob-Gyn, having completed a 36 month fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Mayo Clinic, Arizona in 2004. My training included oncologic, urologic and colorectal surgical rotations, with attention to complex pelvic dissection and multispecialty collaboration. I have a breadth of experience in gynecology, urogynecology and pelvic surgery that has led to excellent patient outcomes and patient reviews.

    Since 2005, I have built a solo private practice in urogynecology and gynecology with special emphasis on mesh-free robotic primary and repeat repairs of pelvic prolapse, conservative and surgical care for urinary incontinence, urodynamics, complex robotic hysterectomy, in-office endometrial ablation and management of general gynecologic complaints.

    I maintain hospital privileges in good standing at several local facilities and I have personally developed relationships with local and regional referral sources by focusing on careful outreach and a commitment to positive outcomes.

    Throughout my career I have striven to exceed patient and collegial expectations.
