I am a board-certified gynecologic oncologist who specializes in surgery for women with ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar, or vaginal cancer.
I have a strong interest in providing minimally invasive surgical options for our patients, including both laparoscopic and robotic-assisted procedures. In 2006, I became one of the first gynecologic oncologists to use the da Vinci® Surgical System to perform robotically-assisted procedures in women with benign and malignant gynecologic conditions. Minimally invasive procedures result in less blood loss than do traditional surgeries, allowing for shorter hospital stays and faster recuperation time for patients. I serve as the Director for the Minimal Access and Robotic Surgery Program in the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering and have helped to build one of the best and most experienced robotic surgery programs in the world across multiple surgical specialties.
I also perform radical procedures via traditional laparotomy in cases when these more-traditional surgeries may provide better results and longer survival. These include debulking for ovarian cancer and radical procedures for other gynecologic cancers.

My practice is dedicated to the comprehensive care and treatment of women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers, pre-cancerous conditions and complex problems that require the specialized training and experience of a gynecologic oncologist.
It is the mission of our doctors, nurses and other support personnel to provide the best treatments available to all of our patients, while at the same time recognizing that each patient is a partner in their own treatment. We therefore strive to provide the highest level of care in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of information between the patient and the caregiver.
Even though the nature of medical care delivery changes daily, we will always work hard to maintain the high standard of patient care that has been a distinguishing feature of our practice since its beginning in 1998.
In practice since: 1992
