She pursued advanced training in gynecologic laparoscopy through an AAGL/SRS fellowship at the University of Rochester. The fellowship had a strong emphasis on the evaluation and management of chronic pelvic pain. She has also received training and certification in robotic surgery.
Since graduating from fellowship, she has been on faculty at the University of Rochester in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is Director for the Center for Pelvic Pain and Vulvar Disorders.
Her interests are in endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, and care for transgender patients seeking gender-affirming hysterectomy. She welcomes referrals for patients with chronic pelvic pain or those who may require a surgeon with advanced skills in laparoscopic gynecology, including robot-assisted laparoscopy.
