WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a board-certified interventional radiologist specializing in interventional oncology. I focus primarily on cancer involving the liver, kidney, and bone. Through very small incisions, I guide treatments from the skin to the cancer using x-ray, ultrasound, or CAT scan to monitor progress in real-time. These treatments include ablation (targeting special probes into the cancer to directly burn or freeze and destroy the tumor within the body) and embolization (driving thin hollow tubes from the skin to the cancer blood vessels to deliver medications and occlude tumor blood supply). I hold over twenty research publications and am a reviewer for multiple academic journals. I have lectured nationally and internationally at conferences including the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society, Society of Interventional Radiology, and American Society of Spine Radiology. I am dedicated to providing my patients with modern, minimally-invasive, exceptional-quality cancer care, while preserving their quality of life.
