About

Bio

I specialize in transplantation of the liver, kidney and pancreas as well as surgeries involving the liver, bile ducts and pancreas. I also perform minimally invasive procedures involving the liver, pancreas and kidneys which affords less pain, smaller incisions and quicker recovery time.

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.
