Make an Appointment
I am a professor of gynecologic oncology at The Ohio State University. I have extensive expertise in the latest surgical techniques including radical pelvic surgery, pelvic reconstruction and minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic and robotic surgery. I have taught these techniques to other surgeons locally, nationally and internationally. As director of the JamesCare for Life program, I also focus on patient support, education and symptoms relief for patients at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.
I graduated from Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. I completed my residency at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and pursued a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at the UCLA School of Medicine and Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. After fellowship, I joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota Hospital and Clinic as an assistant professor. In 1997, I returned to The Ohio State University College of Medicine as an associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology, and have served as director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology. In 2001, I was named the inaugural holder of the John G. Boutselis Chair in Gynecologic Oncology, and in 2002 was promoted to professor.
I serve as a board examiner for general obstetrics and gynecology and gynecologic oncology sub-specialty oral exams for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am also on the Board of Governors of the American College of Surgeons and the Gynecologic Oncology Board of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I serve as the chair of the membership committee for the GCF. I previously completed a two-year term as chief of staff at the OSUCCC – James.
I have authored or co-authored more than 110 journal articles and numerous book chapters and abstracts. I am a member of the editorial boards for Gynecologic Oncology and the Journal of Robotic Surgery. My primary research interests have been in advancing the state of the art of surgery in gynecologic oncology including minimally invasive surgery (first laparoscopy and now robotics), radical pelvic surgery and pelvic reconstructive surgery.
I have received several awards recognizing my excellence in medical student and resident teaching at Ohio State. I have also been recognized for my research presentations. I have been listed among the "Best Doctors in America" for the past 10 years.
