Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

I spent 10 years in surgical training, developing the technical skills I would use for a career in Minimally Invasive and Liver and Pancreas Surgery. My real education, however, came over the last 15 years of my practice where I have learned to apply these skills individually to patients. Each patient presents a unique set of challenges, both medical and social. Meeting my patients and taking the time to understanding them and their desires and expectations ultimately help assure that they get the best outcome possible.Read more

Why Does Experience Matter?

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.
