About

Bio

As a general surgeon, I have extensive training in both open and laparoscopic surgery. Before each surgery is scheduled, I takes the time to assess each patient and their individual factors to determine which surgical approach is most appropriate.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
