As of this year I will stop doing OB, and concentrate on my GYN practice. This is now more focused to the older perimenopausal population. I have become much more active in working on pelvic reconstruction and treatment of urinary incontinence related to anatomic damage of childbirth. I enjoy finding the least invasive manner of treating a patient. If we can I will avoid surgery, but if not I am happy to offer vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic routes of treatment. I frequently remove large uteruses and fibroids through the robotic or laparoscopic route, and am very comfortable with complex GYN surgery. I also work with menopausal medicine and pelvic pain related to muscle spasm working with a wonderful group of physical therapists. I am part of the Pelvic Health Network at Swedish and actively work with my colleagues in Urology and Colorectal surgery to determine the best treatment for a patient. I feel it is very important to find the right treatment for each patient.
