He strongly believes in the use of surgical videos as an educational tool for advancing the art and science of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. He was awarded multiple times for the best surgical video presentation by ACOG. He is the only six-time Golden Laparoscope Award winner for best surgical video at AAGL.

He is repeatedly nominated by his peers as the one of the “Best Doctors” in America since 2004.
His devotion as a clinician-educator is evidenced by his successful mentorship of minimally invasive surgical fellows since 2001. His fellowship has placed the highest number of fellows in major academic institutions among all of the AAGL MIGS fellowship since its inception. His fellows have obtained leadership positions in major academic institutions throughout the country and abroad. They in turn are training the next generation of young gynecologic surgeons in the art and science of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
