From Dr. Mama:
"In my gynecology practice at Cooper University Health Care, I seek to provide individualized care in a respectful and supportive environment. There is an emphasis on listening to the patient and addressing all concerns. Time for patient education and collaborative decision-making with the patient are integral to my practice.
"I provide the full range of gynecologic services and my areas of special interest include female urinary incontinence and prolapse, pelvic reconstruction both for older patients as well as children and teenagers with anatomic mullerian anomalies. I have special expertise in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, both laparoscopic and robotic for pelvic pain, adhesive disease, endometriosis, and fibroids. This includes robotic laparoscopic myomectomies, and hysterectomies.
"Preventive medicine is my primary concern given my background in public health and this involves a focus on healthy behavior and disease prevention."
