Patient Care Setting



“Pediatric surgery allows me to help a child get better and bring him or her back to the family that needs that child to become whole. It is humbling to think about the possibilities of what that young life may become.”

Areas of Expertise

• Pediatric general and thoracic surgery
• Pediatric surgical critical care
• Pediatric minimally invasive surgery

I specialize in treating pediatric surgical patients with diseases including congenital abnormalities such as esophageal atresia, intestinal atresia, diaphragmatic hernias, cystic abnormalities of the lungs, Hirschsprung disease, anorectal malformations, gastroschisis and omphalocele. In addition, I care for children with surgical problems including hernias, appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease and all pediatric cancers.

It is my belief that the optimal care of the pediatric surgical patient requires thinking about the entire child – his or her physical, mental and emotional well-being. The best care involves the family and requires input from many care partners including the patient’s primary care physician, subspecialists, nursing, therapists and social workers, all of whom have the best interests of the child at heart. I promise to listen, to be collaborative and to be accommodating in accomplishing our common goal to make a child better.
