Patient Care Bio

I chose this field because it is my goal to partner with my patients to help them return to wellness.

Treating patients who have a surgically approachable disease requires a holistic approach – and I am always mindful of their physiologic, psychological and environmental challenges. Surgery is only one component of the complete care of the patient.

My areas of expertise are minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, complex abdominal wall reconstruction, treatment of splenic disorders and oncologic vascular access.

Conditions I Treat

- Gastrointestinal cancers
- Hematologic gastrointestinal/splenic disorders
- Abdominal wall reconstructions and other hernias
- Biliary disease
