I came to Duke from Nebraska where I was a medical director for two weight loss surgery programs. I decided to become a weight loss surgeon because it gives me the chance to establish a long-term relationship with my patients.

I get a thrill out of being able help patients start this new life.

Then I work with the patient to come up with a treatment plan that meets their physical and mental health needs.Read more
