My practice focuses on the surgical treatment of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. I also have a special interest in the surgical management of hiatal hernias, GERD and paraesophageal hernias. I believe in the application of minimally invasive surgery approaches to address surgical disease and allow for decreased hospital stays, less post-operative pain, and improved recovery.
What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?
I believe attention to detail and meticulous patient care leads to optimal patient outcomes. Patient satisfaction and a team based approach in developing a personalized plan of care for each patient are priorities for each of our patients.
