WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, I grew up mostly on the east coast of the United States. I went to college in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and medical school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I did my post-graduate training in New Haven and Hartford, Connecticut, and Madison, Wisconsin. I took my first academic position at Boston University and the Boston Medical Center during which I rose to the position of Associate Professor of Surgery and Chief of Surgical Critical Care. I was recruited back to the University of Wisconsin in 2012 where I became Division Chief of Trauma, Acute Care Surgery, Burn, and Surgical Critical Care. My wife, three daughters, and I are happy to meet the friendly people of the area and explore everything that North Carolina has to offer.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

As a trauma surgeon, I am interested in all injuries that patients experience, particularly to the chest and chest wall. As an intensivist I am interested in management of patients on the ventilator. And, in general, I am interested in social justice aspects of health care such as opiate abuse and socioeconomic disparity.
