I also perform radical procedures 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. Additionally, using the robotic approach, I perform fertility-sparing surgery (radical trachelectomy) for women with early-stage cervical cancer. I continue to seek ways to improve outcomes for my patients and continuously seek to evaluate cutting edge technologies in surgery.
I also have a strong interest in clinical research. Research is vital for development of better treatments for all patients diagnosed with cancer. People with cancer face a difficult journey, and clinical trials are just one of the tools I offer my patients to help them during this time. I serve as the principal investigator at Memorial Sloan-Kettering for the Gynecologic Oncology Group — a national group conducting quality cooperative research at many institutions throughout the country.
In 2004, I completed my fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and received the Michael E. Burt Memorial Award for Clinical Excellence. I then became Director of Gynecologic Services at the New Jersey Medical School, where I received the National Faculty Award from the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I joined the Memorial Sloan-Kettering staff in 2007. I am a member of many medical societies and the author of peer-reviewed scientific articles, chapters, and reviews.
I am at the Main Campus in Manhattan Monday through Thursday, and I see patients every Friday at our Basking Ridge, New Jersey, location.
