I've enjoyed working in the Venice community for over twenty years. We have an office with a small town warmth but have a cutting-edge approach. I enjoy the diversity of my practice.

The majority of lung surgeries performed across the country are still full open surgeries. Robotic assisted surgery is relatively new and is performed by a minority of surgeons.

Robotic-assisted surgery has been particularly beneficial for patients requiring lung surgery. I love using this system.Read more
