Dr. Desai received her medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine, West Indies.

She then completed a Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, where she subsequently joined the faculty practice and remains a strong proponent of women's healthcare.

Although she sees patients for a variety of gynecologic issues, Dr. Desai's expertise involves treating patients with chronic pelvic pain, as well as performing minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, including laparoscopic and robotic procedures.

In addition to her clinical responsibilities, she  serves as Program Director for the Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery, Program Director for the Robotic Center of Excellence and Chair of OB/GYN at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center. 

Dr. Desai is committed to furthering the well-being of women, and, thus, has an avid interest in continuing research in both pelvic pain and surgery. She strives to provide her patients with an individualized and comprehensive approach. Her goal is to empower women to make optimal healthcare choices through healthcare education and patient advocacy.
