Minimally invasive robotic surgery techniques. I also have expertise in tumor debulking and intraperitoneal heated chemotherapy (HIPEC) for patients with carcinomatosis.

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

I provide a thorough explanation of the type of cancer the patient has and explain all the treatment options with the patient.
