About Me and My Practice
The journey through surgical care can be daunting and stressful. I find great joy in easing patients through this journey.
On General Surgery
The field of general surgery has evolved such that I am able to deliver advanced skills and techniques to patients. In addition, general surgery gives me the opportunity to participate in overall community healthcare and directly save lives.
About Your Physician
The aspect I most enjoy about general surgery involves taking a problem, applying a solution, and realizing immediate benefit for the patient.
My wife and I enjoy outdoor activities and are excited to raise our young family.
While I find all aspects of general surgery interesting, advanced laparoscopic procedures allow me the opportunity to provide advanced surgical care, with a decreased amount of pain and improved recovery time for patients.
