About

Bio

I am a practicing Obstetrician-Gynecologist in the Princeton NJ area. I have special interests in Robotic assisted, minimally invasive surgery. I am currently the most experienced gyn surgeon in central Nj using the Davinci robotic system. I also have an interest in Patient Safety.

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.
