Biography

I am a fellowship-trained Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgeon and Board-Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist. I specialize in minimally-invasive procedures for women with complex pathology such as large uteri, fibroids, advanced endometriosis, pelvic adhesive disease, or who have multiple medical comorbidities. I commonly perform laparoscopic hysterectomy, myomectomy, endometriosis surgery, adnexal surgery and hysteroscopy. I also have an interest in Essure removal, C-section defect repair and laparoscopic cerclage.

My training includes a two-year fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tufts Medical Center. I also completed a Master of Public Health with a focus in Clinical Effectiveness at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I obtained my medical degree at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and my undergraduate degree in Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University.

Outside of the operating room, my time is dedicated to clinical research and teaching. I am also an active member of my field’s national organization, the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. I am native to Boston where I currently reside with my family.
