Dr. Lerner is a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist in Newton, Massachusetts. In addition to having delivered over 8000 babies (of which approximately 100 involved shoulder dystocias), Dr. Lerner has been active in seeking to elucidate the causes of shoulder dystocia and to find better means of predicting them and resolving them when they do occur. Most recently Dr. Lerner has become affiliated with LMS Medical Systems, a risk reduction technology firm in Montréal Canada that is developing approaches for shoulder dystocia prediction.
