Care Philosophy

I specialize in the surgical management of benign and malignant diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (GI) tract. Specifically trained in laparoscopic resection of inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer I perform the full range of colorectal operations including reconstructive operations such as ileal pouches. My clinical research and administrative efforts are all focused on implementing perioperative care practices that ensure best patient outcomes. Bridging specialties to best care for GI surgery patients I particularly enjoy combined cases. For instance I regularly operate with the pediatric surgery team on younger patients with IBD or pelvic cancer. Until my exposure to surgery in medical school I thought I wanted the patient-doctor relationship well-known to primary care. With experience however I realized this relationship was possible in the practice of surgery. Colorectal surgery allows me the privilege of long-term relationships with a great variety of patients; close relationships with my colleagues; and administrative positions that promote the best care.

She is the worst doc I have ever met. Arrogant and don't care. She did colectomy on my father and his abdomen got infected.
