As a doctor and a surgeon, it is my responsibility to help guide your through the challenging health related issues that you may be facing. I truly believe that this is a team approach and we will be helping each other to address the necessary problems. I work very hard to communicate with you in a timely and straight forward manner. In return I will ask of you to keep me informed about any pertinent changes in your health so that I can make the most timely decisions. I am currently working at Reading Hospital in Pennsylvania where my partner and I have one of the largest experiences in utilization of the robotic technology for bariatric and intraabdominal surgery in the Northeast While working at Crozer Chester Medical Center, I helped introduce Robotic General and Bariatric Surgery and was appointed the director of Robotic Surgery. This technology allows me to deliver a more precise form of surgical intervention. While not all patients may be candidates for this minimally invasive approach, I will take the time to get to know you and your medical and surgical history so that I can tailor your treatment to your specific needs. Working closely with my colleagues, my nurses and the hospital administrators, we were able to accomplish the lowest adverse events in United States in Bariatric Surgery according to Blue Health Intelligence, a subsidiary of Blue Cross and Blue Shield. You can rest assured that all necessary actions will be taken to help reduce the risk of any complications that are known to occur with the respective surgical intervention.
