We celebrate the 2,500 robotic surgery by Dr. Thomas


If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with gynecological cancer (cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, or vulvar cancer) or any other serious gynecological disease, see a doctor who has extensive experience with similar cases.

For the people in our community, M. Bijoy Thomas, MD, Chief of Gynecological Oncology at Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute, offers this and more.

Thomas performs around 15 to 18 robotic gynecological surgeries each week, more than many other doctors in his field in a year. Recently, he has surpassed 2,500 robot-assisted surgical cases over the course of his career and is one of the highest-volume surgical practices in his field in the country.

“As you do more of these procedures, you get better at what you do,” says Thomas. “The time patients spend under anesthesia is reduced, surgical complications are less likely and patients recover faster.”

Thomas is part of the Lehigh Valley Physician Group Gynecologic Oncology, which provides extensive surgical expertise in both cancer and benign gynecological diseases. In addition to Thomas, who treats patients at the John and Dorothy Morgan Cancer Center at Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest, the program includes Christine Kim, MD, who sees patients at Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH) – Pocono and LVH – Hecktown Oaks.
