, M.D., a Board Certified Urologist specializing in the treatment of diseases of the male and female urinary tract and male reproductive organs, has joined the medical staff of Peconic Bay Medical Center
and set up full-time practice in Riverhead.
Dr. Hill has the distinction of being the only robotically trained, board certified, female Urologist in Suffolk County. Dr. Hill did her postgraduate training at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City
, with specialty rotations at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Westchester Medical Center. She is one of a select number of surgeons in the region qualified to offer patients an alternative to both open and laparoscopic surgery by performing minimally invasive surgical procedures using the breakthrough technology of the da Vinci Surgical System.
Dr. Hill's commitment to the expert practice of urology extends to the diagnosis, treatment and management of cancers of the prostate, bladder and kidney. "I chose to be a Urologist because it offered me the best of both worlds. I am able to perform surgery and cure or manage urological diseases, and in addition, to develop strong and lasting relationships with my patients through the care I provide to them on a long-term basis. The field of urology is also rich with innovation and research, and these continue to be major interests of mine," said Dr. Hill.
