General Surgery | Male

Care Philosophy

I believe in a strong relationship between a the surgeon and patient. In our office you will meet with me before and after your surgery. Surgery is not just about having the technical skills to do the procedure , it is also about doing the right procedure or choosing not to operate at all. As an independent surgery group we offer cost effective care that is in our opinion higher in quality and less in cost than hospital employed surgeons.
