Philosophy of Patient Care
The women who seek care from me can expect to be involved in all aspects of their medical decision making. I find that women are most comfortable when they understand all the options available to them. I believe that this can be one of the most satisfying aspects of my role. In addition, I am part of an extraordinary surgical and research team that is on the leading edge of the diagnosis and treatment of common and uncommon pelvic floor disorders such as urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, genitourinary fistulas and vaginal reconstruction. As a surgeon and physician I am committed to excellence in my practice and personal life.
