Profile
ABOUT ME

I treat all gynecologic cancers including endometrial/uterine, ovarian, cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers. I also take care of women who do not have cancer but may need pelvic surgery that is anticipated to be difficult or complicated. My specific surgical areas of expertise include advanced laparoscopic and robotic surgery, fertility-sparing surgery, sentinel lymph node procedures, laser therapy, and complex pelvic surgery. I have a wonderful support staff, and together we believe we provide the best patient-centered care for all of our patients.
