Pediatric Surgery | Male

Biography

I have been in academic and private pediatric surgical practice for over thirty years now. My partners and I provide comprehensive care to children with a broad range of surgical problems. Although we work with residents, care is carefully supervised and the attending is involved with all decisions and procedures. Our areas of expertise are laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery, neonatal surgery and oncology. Florida Hospital for Children is a state of the art hospital with a wonderful environment. All specialties are available and resources are unmatched in Florida.
