I am a Board Certified General Surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). I am personally dedicated to providing excellent medical and surgical care, using the most current techniques including minimally invasive and endoscopic approaches when possible. It is of utmost importance to me that each person under my care will have the opportunity to understand their own medical and surgical options in depth, and the risks and benefits of each available option.
Being as informed as possible is extremely important for each person to take part in their own health and recovery. I often draw pictures for my patients to facilitate discussion and understanding of the surgical approach and strategies. We discuss in detail the expected recovery time and long term outcomes. It is important to me to be open with each of my patients about my personal experience and outcomes for their particular procedure.
