About Me

I am passionate about helping women whose quality of life has been impacted by pelvic floor disorders. For nearly two decades, I have enjoyed the personal interaction with my patients in addition to being very involved in research to find new ways to improve the evaluation and treatment for urogynecologic conditions. This experience has allowed me to provide the most innovative, well-researched, and minimally invasive procedures. In addition, I strive to provide therapies that meet the specific needs of my patients. I have always enjoyed an active lifestyle and therefore I strongly believe that all women should be able to continue their activities without the concern for pelvic floor issues. I am also an advocate for those of advancing age, and it gives me great pleasure to help maintain quality of life during what should be wonderful years.
