Areas of Expertise
• Minimally invasive surgery for infants and children, including advanced laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures
• Cryoablation of nerves for pain control after thoracic surgery
• Surgery for a wide range of pediatric conditions in the neck, chest and abdomen
• Surgical critical care focusing on ICU care of neonates, adolescents and patients with traumatic injuries
• Treatment for pediatric congenital anomalies
I chose this field because I love the breadth of conditions a pediatric surgeon has the privilege of addressing. The surgical care of premature babies through teenagers requires multidisciplinary collaboration, planning and detailed attention. Children are amazingly resilient and, as a surgeon, I get to help them through a critical point in their lives, while handling the concerns of the patient and parents alike.
With multidisciplinary planning between medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and pediatric hospitalists, I am also part of a team that treats pediatric tumors through biopsy, vascular access for chemotherapy and resection. I’m excited to join a team that will provide comprehensive care for children with congenital colorectal anomalies, as well as inflammatory bowel disease.
Every time I meet a new patient, I think about the entire family and the course of a child’s life that leads them to that moment. My goal is to address immediate surgical issues while building a relationship with the parents who support their children and are so critical to their care.
