Care Philosophy

Surgery provides the opportunity to apply innovative as well as traditional methods of treatment to serious, and occasionally life threatening conditions. I'm honored that patients trust me with their care. I'll strive to discuss the options and potential problems associated with their care before undertaking action. Unique treatments for breast cancer including remodeling the breast tissue after lumpectomy and intraoperative radiation therapy with powerful electrons (unique in Iowa!)
