About

Bio

My background is in general surgery with fellowship training in surgical oncology. For the past 12 years I have also been involved in the anterior and lateral approaches to the spine where I have published on and taught technique.

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.
