About Me

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. Advances such as robotic surgery and puncture incision laparoscopy (PILS) allow even smaller incisions and improved safety.

The surgery itself went fine I suppose. I did have a hematoma afterwards but that was part of the risk. I never saw the doctor again after my surgery and I agree with the person who left a review feeling like an assembly line. He never followed up on my lab work and when I needed to see him...Read More
