About me

As the Chief of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, I help women deal with all types of urology conditions, both common and complex, including bladder problems and urinary incontinence.

During my medical training, most urologists were men and I felt that there was a growing need for female urologists who specialize in treating female urologic issues. To meet this need, I decided to pursue urology with a focus on the emerging subspecialty of female pelvic medicine.

When I was recruited to start a female urology program at HackensackUMC, I was excited to be one of the few women practicing adult urology—and even fewer practicing female urology—in the area. Many of my patients have told me that finding a female urologist was important to them, because it made them feel more at ease. I am pleased to be able to help them.

The thing I love most about medicine is that it is one of the only fields where I can merge science and technology with helping people. I find that very rewarding. When my patients are feeling hopeless due to a difficult urological condition, I am proud to be able to restore their hope and improve their quality of life.

Conditions and Procedures

Voiding dysfunction, urinary incontinence, pelvic reconstructive surgery, neurourology, pelvic organ prolapse.
