WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a colorectal surgeon, I specialize in the surgical management of a wide array of problems involving the small intestine, colon, rectum and anus. My patients may be dealing with cancer or a variety of benign diseases including diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease or anorectal problems. I utilize many minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopy, endoscopy and transanal surgery. My primary focus is on ensuring that patients receive high quality, compassionate care while optimizing patient outcomes. My research interests include improving patient outcomes after colorectal surgery and quality improvement. When I am not at work I enjoy photography, travel and orchid cultivation.
