I have been an obstetrician/gynecologist for 18 years. I have delivered over 2000 babies. I have performed over 400 hysterectomies and 1000 gynecologic surgeries. All of the hysterectomies I have performed in the past 3 years have been done minimally invasively. Most of these hysterectomies were done using standard laparoscopy or robotic assisted laparoscopy and some were done vaginally. Over time I have developed a particular interest in complex gynecology problems. I have expertise in vulvodynia, vulvar skin disorders, chronic vulvovaginitis, chronic pelvic pain, menopause, and endometriosis. I am currently working on a book on mood and hormones.
