I love my work as an ob/gyn! I enjoy all aspects of my job including both the obstetrical and gynecological care. I particularly enjoy caring for my patients throughout their pregnancy and supporting her in the process of becoming a new mother. As a mother of two children myself, I feel I have the bond of motherhood with them and am able to offer any perspective or lessons I have learned in my process of being a mother. I also really enjoy helping women with difficult gynecological issues through medical or surgical care. I have been blessed with excellent surgical skills and am eager to assist women with their gynecological diseases with surgical treatment if they so desire.
I am specifically trained in treatment of routine and high risk pregnancies including pregnancies affected by diabetes, hypertensive disease or medical diseases in conjunction with recommendations from a perinatologist. My goal for each patient is a healthy mom and healthy baby at the end of each pregnancy. I encourage my patients to discuss with me their hopes and desires for childbirth and I aim to honor those wishes in the realm of safety for her and her fetus. I also enjoy helping my patients with the transition from pregnancy to motherhood and the unique issues that arise in the postpartum period including postpartum depression, contraception choices, breastfeeding counseling, and vaginal pain syndromes that may occur after delivery.
My areas of expertise in gynecology include:
•management of abnormal periods
•abnormal pap smears
•pelvic organ prolapse
•vulvar pain syndromes
•sexually transmitted diseases
•difficulties with conception and infertility evaluation
Many of these problems can be treated with medical management; however I am trained in all surgical management techniques including endometrial ablation, hysterectomy, laparoscopy, laparotomy, urethral slings, repair of vaginal vault prolapse, tubal ligation and tubal occlusion, and hysteroscopy.
