Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Some of the specific conditions I treat include lung cancer, enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes, GERD/acid reflux disease, achalasia, esophageal cancer, esophageal stenosis, thymoma/tumors of the thymus, hyperhidrosis/excessive sweating of the hands and axilla, broken ribs, collapsed lung, and fluid around the lungs.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

Some of the techniques and procedures that I use in my practice include the Da Vinci/robotic system, VATS minimally invasive approach, EBUS/endobronchial ultrasound-guided biopsy, EGD with dilation, esophageal stent placements, robotic lobectomy, lung biopsy, hiatal hernia repair, Heller myotomy, and sympathectomy.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I see patients as human beings that need help and treat all my patients with undivided attention and respect. I always do my best to treat patients with minimally invasive approaches to achieve great results and expedite their recovery. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my patients get better or get cured of their diseases.
