Faculty Appointments


As the former Director of Gynecologic Oncology and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology for the University of Rochester Medical Center, I strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for my patients.

The field of gynecologic oncology attracted me because it encompasses both surgical and medical aspects of cancer care. It is a challenging and unique field, but is also especially rewarding.

I have expertise in robotic surgery, as well as in treating endometrial cancers and gestational trophoblastic neoplasms. My patients can be confident knowing that I will spare no effort in providing the best care for their condition.

Conditions I Treat

- Ovarian cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Endometrial cancer
- Vulvar cancer
- Gestational trophoblastic neoplasms
