I have been in practice for over 27 years and have a wealth of experience in both obstetrics and gynecology. I was trained at Lankenau Hospital and benefitted from working extensively with: the experienced general obstetrician and gynecologists, the gyn oncologists, the perinatologists and the reproductive endocrinologists. Our program included extensive surgical training, especially in vaginal surgery (which is not taught as much these days) and in cases with difficult anatomy. The obstetricians who trained me were experienced in forceps, and we were well trained in all aspects of vaginal and cesarean delivery.
Since residency, I have made a consistent effort to keep up with advances in surgical techniques in gynecology. I took courses in operative laparoscopy, as the instrumentation and video systems were developed, and have become proficient in all of the latest procedures. I have wealth of experience in procedures such as laparoscopic salpingoophorectomies and treatment of ovarian cysts. I am trained in the use of the DaVinci robot and have performed many laparoscopic hysterectomies.
During my residency, I often had the opportunity to operate with the plastic surgeons when they did additional procedures at the time of gyn surgery, and have continued to have an interest in the cosmetic aspects of surgery. I have extensive experience in scar revision at the time of gyn surgery and repeat cesarean section. As an extension of this interest, our practice now offers procedures for spot reduction of fat in the office.
