WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a surgical oncologist and researcher whose primary areas of focus are cancers of the liver and pancreas. As a surgeon, I believe in using minimally-invasive techniques, when possible, to speed up a patient’s recovery and get them to other avenues of care faster. My research is focused on clinical practice and clinical outcomes. I became interested in surgical oncology, because I enjoy the opportunity to restore hope to patients who may feel despair after their initial cancer diagnosis. I aim to restore hope by connecting with patients individually and providing them with options for treatment when they might feel they have none. I also work closely with my radiology oncology and medical oncology colleagues in crafting a treatment and care plan. Working together as a team often allows us to come up with a much better treatment plan than any of us could by ourselves.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My main areas of interests are benign and malignant disorders of the pancreas and liver. I have particular interests in adapting cutting edge technology (i.e.- minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery) to patient care with the goals of a safer surgical experience and enhanced postoperative recovery. I believe that this will have significant implications and potentially benefit patients by improving oncologic outcomes.
