Research Summary

Interested in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS), post op pain control in minimally invasive surgeries, breast cancer and prophylactic oophorectomy, endometriosis, and pelvic pain.

Extensive Research Description

I am currently a PI in a trial for laparoscopic-assisted Transversus Abdominis Plane Block (TAP Block ) in undergoing laparoscopic gynecologic surgeries. I was a PI or assistant PI in multiple researches including multi-center. One of the most recent studies which is ready for publishing was about the effect of uterine manipulator in laparoscopic staging for endometrial cancer. I was part of multi-center research for surgical findings for breast cancer patients who were undergoing laparoscopic oophorectomy.
