WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a general surgeon at Duke Raleigh Hospital and mostly do acute care surgery. I operate on a lot of areas, but my main focus is on the abdomen, GI tract, gallbladder, and hernias. I also do thyroid and parathyroid surgery. My approach is to not do anything to a patient that I wouldn’t do to one of my family members. One of my interests is to get the family involved right from the beginning. We can do all we can to help the patients, but after they leave and finish their acute care, it’s the families who will need them to help provide care when they are home. I like to see my patients after surgery and ensure they are healing properly. It is a very patient-centric approach here at Duke, and we have a great collaborative effort, with the common goal to get the patient well.
