WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My primary areas of clinical interest are surgical oncology, general surgery, and palliative surgery. Melanoma and other skin and soft tissue tumors, as well as palliative surgery, are specific areas in which I have particularly strong clinical and research interests. In addition to patient care and research, I am committed to education and training. It is important to me to be accessible, engaged, and thoughtful in my approach to interacting with patients, colleagues, learners, and other stakeholders. For me, a principle guiding force is a deep-seated belief in patient-centered, multidisciplinary, compassionate, state-of-the-art care that aims to serve our community and support the mission and values of Duke Health.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

It is imperative that we not only provide the best state-of-the-art care, but also constantly strive to develop better care for patients. My primary research interests center around improving melanoma treatments -- with a particular focus on how to enhance the ability of a patient's own immune systems to destroy tumors. Another area of interest lies in understanding how to improve care for patients requiring symptom-directed palliative surgery.
