We believe in practicing medicine that is individualized, but also evidence based. We want you to be involved in your care and to know your options, to come up with a plan that is right for you. Experience matters. We have delivered thousands of babies, and performed hundreds of hysterectomies, most using minimally invasive techniques. We have the most experienced robotic surgeon, and the most experienced midwife in the Interior.
