About Me

I’m a urologist with advanced training in endourology, and I specialize in minimally invasive and robotic procedures for kidney stones, benign prostatic hypertrophy, kidney cancer and prostate cancer. I try to get to know my patients on a personal level and understand their perspectives and concerns so that I can help with their urologic problems in a way that matches their needs and goals. Patients should seek treatment at Duke because of the excellent quality of care and the integration of care, both within urology and amongst other specialties. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing hockey and cycling.
