Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
I am a board-certified general surgeon, practicing the entire spectrum of surgical disease processes, including upper and lower endoscopy. These procedures include breast, colon and thyroid cancer, abdominal procedures including gallbladder, stomach, spleen, appendix and small bowel, intra-abdominal adhesions and abdominal pain. I treat and repair hernias of all types, including hiatal, ventral abdominal, inguinal, femoral and spigelian. These procedure are mostly performed laparoscopically, through very small incisions. I have a particular interest in GERD, and perform Nissen fundoplication, the STRETTA procedure, and TIF (incisionless fundoplication).
I also have a large practice of endoscopy cases, including EGD and colonoscopy, for benign and malignant disease, and have an active interest in venous insufficiency and the treatment of varicose veins and their associated problems.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
