I am an obstetrician and gynecologist with specialized training and board certification in urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery. My practice focuses on the care of women who have pelvic floor disorders that affect their quality of life. These problems include vaginal bulging or prolapse, issues with bowel and bladder control, vaginal fistula, mesh complications and other complications from gynecologic surgery or childbirth. I enjoy working with women to formulate a treatment plan tailored specifically to their problems. I like being able to help them get back to doing the things they want to without worry. Outside of my profession, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two boys.
