About

Bio

I am a board certified surgeon specializing in minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery for gastrointestinal problems including acid reflux, hiatal hernia, abdominal hernia, gallbladder, weight-loss (bariatric), and other abdominal disorders. I offer the POSE procedure, Lap-Band, and Lap Sleeve.

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.
