Personal

I embrace the advent of "minimally invasive surgery" as a major advance. Doing more for each patient while offering shorter recoveries and less discomfort is a wonderful benefit of laparoscopic surgery, my primary interest.  I find this to be an exciting time for surgery and medicine, where everyday brings new advances.  I am particularly interested in tailoring surgical therapies to fit each patient's needs, considering every patient as a unique individual.
