- What services do you typically provide? I practice the full scope of Urogynecology. I offer medical and surgical management options for pelvic floor disorders such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, accidental bowel leakage, recurrent bladder infections, and certain types of chronic pelvic pain, like interstitial cystitis. I also practice general gynecology.
- What are the unique skills you have as a clinician? I am an expert in vaginal surgery, which is the safest and most minimally invasive surgical approach, and with a relatively easy recovery as well. I believe in offering patients choices and I'm supportive of working with patients within whatever parameters they're comfortable with. I am also a great listener!
