About

Bio

I am dedicated to improving the care of children and their families. I have apsecial interest in issues relating to anorectal malformations, including imperforate anus, Hirschsprung Disease, cloacal anomalies, caudal regression and patients who have these issues. I also have a focus on newborn surgery and endocrine surgery (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal), oncologic (cancer) surgery, as well as all common pediatric surgical issues such as hernias, hydroceles, undescended testis and neck masses. It is essential to include the family in the care of the child and support them and their needs in a safe and caring environment. Outside the hospital, I am very involved in improving quality and outcomes for all children wherever they are cared. (see publications)
