ELIZABETH, NJ - One of the first doctors in the US to become board certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Mark Preston will now bring his expertise to women served at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.  He has extensive experience in using robotic surgery techniques to treat female incontinence, prolapse and many other issues.

As director of the Women’s Center for Incontinence and Pelvic Surgery in Waterbury, CT, Dr. Preston relied on robotic surgery as an important part of his practice for the past five years. In Trinitas operating rooms since early 2009, the da Vinci system has been used in general surgery as well as gynecological and urological procedures. The daVinci robot provides a less invasive surgical alternative for patients dealing with pathologies of this nature.

 “The problems that I deal with—urinary incontinence, other bladder issues and prolapse—impact so many women,” he says. “These conditions are treatable. You don't have to live with them.”

Known for his relaxed, easygoing personality and unflappable demeanor in the operating room, Dr. Preston spends at least 45 minutes to an hour talking to patients upon first meeting. The key, he says, is to listen to the patient and make sure you are addressing her desires and concerns.

“It's really important that patients feel I understand them and that they are comfortable with me,” Dr. Preston explains. “I've kept that primary care attitude that I had when I first started in medicine. I love getting to know patients and building a relationship with each person.”

“We are proud to welcome Dr. Preston to one of the busiest robotic surgical GYN teams on the east coast,” says Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President/CEO of Trinitas. “Not only is he specialized in this particular form of surgery, but he is very committed to quality patient care which is a priority here at Trinitas.”

Dr. Mark R. Preston did his post-graduate urogynecology training at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, Emory University Medical School and the Center for Women’s Health and Female Continence in Salinas, CA.
