About the Provider

I am board certified in general surgery and board eligible in colon and rectal surgery. I have a strong interest in minimally invasive surgery. I find the profession of colon and rectal surgery interesting and satisfying due to the various ways to improve patient quality of life.

I take care of my patients the way I would want to be cared for. I find it paramount to have patients completely comfortable and at ease during what could be a very difficult and stressful time in their life. In a time when so many surgical options are available, I like to educate my patients to help them make an informed decision together.

I have assisted in writing book chapters and journal articles on colon and rectal disease topics and minimally invasive surgical approaches. As the director of medical education, I look forward to the opportunity of guiding future physicians as my mentors have - and continue  to - guide me.
