Dr. Kurss' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kurss "Through energetic hard-work and devotion, I've developed a practice known for comprehensive, innovative, thorough, skillful, and compassionate care for women of all ages. I am confident in an office setting where, over the last thirty years, I have cared for more than ten thousand patients. Similarly, in the operating room, I have safely and appropriately addressed my patient's varied surgical needs. In addition to offering minimally invasive laparoscopic and vaginal procedures in the hospital setting, I have a decade of experience performing more than four hundred in-office endometrial ablations and Essure procedures. My practice has grown, in large part, due to referrals from medical colleagues and from patients who referred their family members and friends. As numerous patients have been under my continuous care for more than twenty-five years, I now have the privilege of caring for their daughters, most of whom are among the nearly eight thousand babies whom I have delivered.
