Care Philosophy

I focus on minimally invasive surgical treatment of a number of conditions. This approach minimizes discomfort and recovery time, allowing return to normal activity as soon as possible.

Patient Reviews (2)
in Boulder, CO |
Intelligent and compassionate man. His demeanor was confidence inspiring and professional. I would recommend him to anyone in the Boulder, CO area who needs a surgeon.
in Louisville Colorado |
He's very educated and knows his field of work. He's done two of my surgeries and without using radiation to find the cause of the problem, he found the problem with symptoms explained. It's very evident that he has experience in the medical field and I would trust only this surgeon with any surgery. I still have some abdominal issues but he has fixed the ones that he specializes in and more thus far. He has removed my appendix my gallbladder and fixed my bilateral hernia. He's a five-star!
