WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a gastrointestinal and general surgeon with subspecialty experience in endocrine and bariatric surgery, focusing on emergency general surgery and conditions of the GI tract (like bowel obstructions, cholecystitis, diverticulitis, and appendicitis). I initially trained and practiced at USF Health in Tampa, for nearly 15 years. In 2012, I was recruited to the NC Triad, where I developed the Acute Care Surgery Program. In 2018, I joined the faculty at Duke University as the lead physician to build the Acute Care Surgery Program at Duke Raleigh Hospital. It is an honor and privilege to care for patients while training the next generation of surgeons and surgical thought leaders at Duke. When not in the hospital or doing research, I can be found with my family and dog or horse--or maybe you'll catch me enjoying a college football game with my son.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My primary research focuses on improving quality, outcomes, and patient safety. I also have a specific interest in patient monitoring in the perioperative period to improve patient safety, specifically as related to obesity and sleep apnea. Whether the obesity epidemic, the opioid crisis, or other socioeconomic disparity, improving patient care and access to care is my ultimate goal.
