I graduated medical school from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and did my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Sheba Medical Center in Israel. My fellowship in Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Medicine included three years, shared between London (St. George’s Hospital) and Houston (Baylor College of Medicine). My current position in Sheba Medical Center and Pade Poria Medical center is head of the Urogynecology unit. My practice is combined of clinical load of urogynecology patients, complex reconstructive surgery, teaching residents and medical students and clinical research.
I also was one of the founders of the Israeli Urogynecology Association in 2002, and still active in this association. In addition, I developed the minimal invasive surgical techniques in reconstructive pelvic surgery in my department, the 3D ultrasound for pelvic floor evaluation, and in recent years I introduced the vaginal laser use for urogynecology problems. My research interest is focused on vaginal laser effects on patients with urinary incontinence, and I published more than 45 papers in peer reviewed journals
