I am a board-certified gynecologic oncologist who specializes in the surgical treatment of women with known or suspected ovarian cancer.

For most women with these cancers, surgery is an important part of the initial treatment and increases the possibility of long-term survival. Many studies have shown that women with gynecologic cancers have better outcomes when a gynecologic oncologist performs their primary surgery. For women with advanced ovarian cancer, the resection, or removal, of all visible disease at the time of initial surgery is a critical component of long-term success. Every time I enter the operating room, my entire focus and effort is solely directed toward complete cancer removal. A diagnosis of ovarian cancer can be very challenging for both women and their families. Together we can create an individualized plan of surgical excellence that incorporates the latest knowledge in ovarian cancer therapy both in the operating room and beyond. My multidisciplinary approach to ovarian cancer therapy coupled with years of expertise allows my patients to benefit from cutting-edge surgical and medical treatments.
