Having undertaken a fellowship program in minimally invasive gynecological surgery (MIGS) at Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Dr. Tam has advanced training in gynecological surgery. She provides her patients with a minimally invasive approach to gynecological surgery. Providing genuine care and understanding for women of all ages, she takes the time to listen to their needs, as well as to advise and to educate them. As an accomplished clinician and surgeon with over 15 years' professional experience, together with her MIGS fellowship training, Dr. Tam brings an exceptionally high level of skill and knowledge to her field, coupled with her warm and caring bedside manner for all of her patients. She received the Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery surgeon designation in 2013. This designation is awarded by the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and the Surgical Review Corporation to surgeons who provide minimally invasive gynecologic surgical care to patients. Dr. Tam provides her patients with the minimally invasive approach to gynecological surgery because it results in minimal recovery time and scarring.
