Profile
ABOUT ME

As a general pediatric surgeon, I take care of children with many different conditions of the chest or abdomen. These conditions can include birth defects, cancers, injuries caused by accidents and more. I also serve as chief of the division of pediatric surgery at Duke. When a child needs surgical care, it is one of the most challenging times in a family’s life. We are surrounded by a great team at Duke, which gives families the peace of mind that their child is in the best hands possible. I enjoy my role, because I not only get to work with families during times of challenge and happiness, but with staff members who are dedicated to keeping children healthy. I also relish my role in training young surgeons who are dedicated to helping children grow up as healthy as possible.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I run a national research consortium on care for children with congenital hemolytic anemia to help us better understand the role of spleen surgery in treating this condition. I also run a program in Guatemala that supports pediatric surgery clinical service needs, education and research with our partners in that country. Finally, I conduct clinical research, so we can better understand the role of surgery in determining clinical outcomes for various pediatric cancers, neonatal conditions and traumatic injuries.
