The myriad new developments and technology in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology have been both challenging and stimulating. Expert has been involved in special training in laparoscopic surgery in order to keep pace with this ever-growing field. He has co-directed the establishment of minimally invasive surgical protocols for the obstetrics and gynecology department at NorthShore University Healthsystem and is actively involved in the training of residents in laparoscopic surgery (laparoscopic hysterectomy, bilateral adnexectomy, management of ectopic pregnancy, sterilization and diagnostic procedures for endometriosis and pelvic pain, etc.) He has also used the simulation lab for research and training in endoscopic procedures.

The approach to the patient and their clinical workup are just as important as the treatment, weather medical or surgical. Expert's Chapter on Pelvic pain and Endometriosis is currently being updated for the second edition in an office gynecology textbook (see Bio).
