Care Philosophy

I am a transplant surgeon specializing in kidney transplants. Kidney transplantation is unique in surgery because youre providing a cure for a disease. Its very rewarding to see the patients succeed after surgery; the donors also make my practice very special. We cant do a transplant without them providing this wonderful gift. Duke has been performing kidney transplants for 50+ years since the very beginnings of the field. In fact the process of how we match tissues for transplants was started at Duke. Weve done thousands of kidney transplants here so its great to be a part of a program with such a rich history. Im also the chairman of the Department of Surgery and the surgeon-in-chief for the Duke University Health System where we perform all types of transplants.
