Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

I prac­tice patient-cen­tered care and believe that patients are bet­ter served by a sym­bi­ot­ic rela­tion­ship with their providers. I try to pro­vide patients with as much edu­ca­tion as pos­si­ble on their diag­no­sis so we can decide on the cor­rect treat­ment course togeth­er. Pelvic floor recon­struc­tion, pro­lapse, incon­ti­nence and void­ing dys­func­tion are com­plex issues that many patients are embar­rassed to talk about despite the large toll these symp­toms have on qual­i­ty of life. My goal as a female pelvic med­i­cine and recon­struc­tive surgery physi­cian is to pro­vide a safe space for patients to dis­cuss these issues and deliv­er top notch sur­gi­cal treatment.
