My Areas of Practice
As a gastroenterologist, I found it rewarding to work with patients with a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, such as gastroesophageal reflux, peptic ulcer disease and gastritis, diarrhea and pancreatic disorders. I have a special interest and expertise in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), a test which is a combination of endoscopy and ultrasound imaging which is useful in the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, treatment of pain related to pancreatic cancer with celiac plexus neurolysis and also in staging of a variety of gastrointestinal cancers.
