About

Bio

I am a Board Certified General Surgeon. I spent 5 years at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit Michigan for my General Surgery Residency and 1 year at Henry Ford in research for Space Ultrasound for Trauma in a joint project between Henry Ford Hospital and NASA. I see patients mostly for gallbladder disease, appendicitis, bowel obstruction, hernias and colon disease. I also help patient with traumatic injuries at St. Mark's Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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.
