Clinical Interest for Patients
I am trained to treat women with gynecologic cancers and pre-cancers. I have a special interest in minimally invasive surgical techniques including laparoscopy and Da Vinci assisted Robotic surgery.
I have been treating patients with gynecologic cancers for 15 years and feel incredibly honored to do so. I believe in a patient-centered view of care for women with cancer and pre-cancers. We work together as a team and decide on a plan of care which conforms to the social and cultural needs of the many different patients that come into our practice. I firmly believe that patients should be given clear and prompt information about their conditions and believe that the most important part of this is an open line of communication.
