Personal Statement

I consider it a privilege to take care of people and take great pride in providing patients with minimally invasive surgical options with equivalent results and faster recoveries. I strive to make individual plans of care for each patient, aiming for the best and safest results. "What would you do if this were your relative," is an easy question that frequently arises, and my goal is to always practice medicine with that guiding principle.
