About Me

Care Philosophy

As a doctor, I believe first and foremost that taking care of my patients is a privilege. As a surgeon. I feel that it is extremely important to work with patients in a team effort in order to find the best possible treatment, whether it be a surgical or non-surgical option. My goal is to achieve the best results and to minimize postoperative pain through small incision surgery.
