WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a lung specialist practicing interventional pulmonology. I perform minimally invasive procedures to diagnose lung diseases (such as lung cancer, sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis and other inflammation related lung conditions) and pleural conditions (such as infectious/malignant/inflammation related pleural effusions). In additional to diagnosis, I also treat airway abnormalities such as removal of airways tumors or inhaled foreign objects. I also specialize in treatment of chronic pleural effusions, which is fluid around the lung. I enjoy having a close relationship with my patients and derive great pleasure in seeing them improve in their breathing. In my downtime, I love spending time with my family, tinkering with new tools and reading on new technology developments.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I have developed significant research interest in technology innovations within interventional pulmonology. My work on 3D printing and computer-aided design to personalize airway prosthesis has gained attention and momentum. I have presented my work in national conferences and have received encouraging feedback. This is in the hope to provide significant benefit to my patients who have central airway obstructions from underlying cancer or inflammation related airway strictures.
