My Areas of Practice

Anesthesiology is an interesting specialty.  As an anesthesiologist, I meet my patients, gain their trust and provide advanced care... all on the same day.  My guiding values are:  sincerity, empathy, compassion and excellence.

Your initial visit with me will take place after I've reviewed your chart and know your medical history.  The meeting will involve a personalized, non-hurried discussion-- during which, I will thoroughly explain all options available to you.  I will also explain the anesthetic and recovery process to your satisfaction.  All of your questions will be answered and I will make every effort to assure you feel at ease. 

I am trained and certified in all areas of Anesthesiology.  Our practice here at Park Nicollet affords me the opportunity to care for a broad and diverse patient population-- from infants to the elderly, while they have surgeries ranging from hernia repairs to heart surgery.  I have a special interest in anesthesia for thoracic and neuro surgery, as well as regional anesthesia.  One of my greatest satisfactions comes from using local anesthetic injections to provide pain relief.  Our department is at the cutting edge of advanced, post-surgical pain management-- helping our patients experience less pain with fewer side-effects.

Thank you for choosing Park Nicollet.  I look forward to helping you.

I grew up in Nebraska and Wisconsin, but I've lived in Minnesota since 1996.  I've been married for 21 years and I'm the father of triplets... which keeps me busy!  When away from work, I enjoy being with my family, auto racing, fishing, skiing and travel.
