I have been an attending physician at Mass General hospital since 1993. Currently, I am the Division Director of Benign Gynecology and Obstetrics and the OB/GYN third year clerkship director for MGH at Harvard Medical School. I provide specialized gynecologic care for abnormal bleeding, fibroids and endometriosis, including new medical and surgical technologies such as endometrial ablation, hysteroscopic surgery and laparoscopic hysterectomy and myomectomy. I enjoy longstanding relationships with patients, and guide them through OB/GYN care through their life span. Within my practice at MGH West I care for many women with advanced maternal age pregnancy. I also have expertise in  minimally invasive gynecologic surgery,perimenopause and the gynecologic care of breast cancer patients. In addition to teaching, I am interested in patient safety, teamwork training and simulation within the department. My primary focus however is personalized patient care within the outstanding OB/GYN department at MGH.
