Prior to earning my college degree, I entered the US Army, and flew helicopters, including one year in Vietnam, and I was a flight instructor. I graduated from EmbryRiddle aeronautical university in 1973 with a degree in aviation science. I attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (now the Perelman school of Medicine), from 1978-82. I completed my Ob/Gyn residency at Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh in 1986. I have been in private practice in Denton, Texas since 1986. My focus has been pelvic pain, laparoscopy, and endometriosis. I have performed over 4000 standard laparoscopic endometriosis cases. In 2007 I began performing robotic surgery, and perform all my laparoscopic surgeries utilizing the robot completing well over 2000 robotic endometriosis cases. I have published several papers addressing pelvic pain, laparoscopy, endometriosis, and robotic surgery. I presented the Sir Alec Turnbull Lecture at the Annual British Society of Gynaecologic Surgeons in 2007. I only treat endometriosis/pelvic pain patients, and I have particular interest in adhesions.
