Philosophy Of Care

I believe in providing state of the art gynecology/urogynecology based on evidence based medicine and many years of experience. My care and that of my group emphasizes on every non-surgical and surgical options in coordination with nutrition and physical therapy. When surgery is required it is delivered in a minimally invasive approach. Even the most advanced gyne and urogyne surgery are performed vaginally or laparoscopically.
