Dr. Giusto is a urologist who is fellowship-trained in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS). Dr. Giusto specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of various urogenital conditions in men and women.

Dr. Giusto earned her bachelor’s degree in neuroscience with a minor in psychology at The University of Rochester. After earning her medical degree with distinction in service to the community from the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, she went on to complete her general surgery internship and urology residency training at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. She completed specialized surgical training during her residency at Temple University, a Level 1 trauma center and a national leader in robotic-assisted surgery. In addition, Dr. Giusto also served as chief resident in urologic oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
