Patient Care Setting



I chose the field of general surgery because I enjoy the active nature and team-based approach of the operating room.

Areas of Expertise

• Advanced minimally invasive surgery
• Robotic surgery
• Broad-based general surgery
• Laparoscopic colon surgery
• Skin and soft tissue infections
• Ventral and inguinal hernia repairs
• Acid reflux

To provide my patients and their families with the highest level of care, I use clear and open communication to determine the best course of treatment. I am a good communicator and listener and will work hard to meet our shared goals.
