She has also been involved in a wide range of research projects on various subjects, most notably recurrent pregnancy loss, preterm deliveries, cervical insufficiencies and cervical cerclages. One of her recent accomplishments is becoming one of the few physicians with the ability to perform an abdominal cerclage with the DaVinci Robot.
She is a member of the Fellow American College of Ob/Gyn, Society of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, New York Obstetric Society, American College of Physician Executives, and Association of Maternal Fetal Medicine Management.
