Graduated in 1994
After an undergraduate business degree at UC Berkeley, I attended Yale University Medical School and then served in residency at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles receiving a great diversity of experience and opportunity. After seven years in Los Angeles, co-founding and operating a laborist program at two major southern California hospitals, I moved to northern California to the charming Napa Valley. In Napa, my medical partner and I began a minimally invasive center for gynecologic surgery starting in 2002-2003. Since late 2003, we have been utilizing the robotic surgical platform known as the Da Vinci system from Intuitive Surgical. In many ways it had transformed our practice. It was here that I completed the first robotic hysterectomy in California and learned of the impressive benefits of this technology for our patients. I continue my care for patients in the beautiful Napa Valley and for patients throughout the United States for patients seeking minimally invasive solutions for abnormal bleeding, uterine fibroids, large ovarian cysts, endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain.
