Personal

As a urogynecologist, I take care of women with pelvic organ prolapse (bulge from the vagina) and urinary incontinence (leakage of urine) as well as other bladder and rectal problems. I am interested in tailoring each patient's treatment plan to their interests, lifestyle and priorities - whether it be surgical or non-surgical. My free time is spent enjoying my husband and daughter.
