About

Bio

Since starting my practice in 1995, I have dedicated myself to continuous learning and training in medical and surgical treatment of gynecologic problems including pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence, menstrual abnormalities, and many others. I also provide training to other gynecologic surgeons who want to learn my pelvic floor surgery techniques. I believe in evidence-based care and great attention to detail. This is how I strive to provide quality care while minimizing complications and problems. My objective is to help every patient achieve her goals.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
