I graduated from Harvard College with a degree in philosophy and went on to receive my medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. I returned to Boston to complete my residency training in Urologic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital. After graduating from residency I became staff at M.G.H. before pursuing subspecialized fellowship training in Genitourinary Reconstructive Surgery and Cancer Survivorship at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina. After fellowship, I rejoined the faculty at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Department of Urology.
I have two main areas of subspecialty clinical practice:
1) Reconstructive Surgery of the Genitourinary Tract- This involves treating complex problems resulting from congenital abnormalities, trauma, surgical complications or radiation, often using segments of buccal mucosa (inside of the cheek), intestine, skin or prosthetic devices to substitute for non-functional segments of the genitourinary tract. I work closely with colleagues from colorectal surgery and plastic surgery.
2) Benign and Malignant conditions of the Prostate- This involves treatment of benign prostate enlargement as well as prostate cancer, which I help treat in collaboration with my talented colleagues from radiation oncology and medical oncology.
My academic area of interest is medical education and I have published multiple textbook chapters in both adult and pediatric urology. Additionally, I am the urology residency program site director at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
I aim to deliver highly personalized, efficient, evidence based care.
