About

Bio

I am an ENT surgeon by training. I have specialized further in minimally invasive endoscopic surgery for salivary glands, thyroid and parathyroid surgery and head neck cancer surgery. I offer robot assisted procedure for thyroid and head neck tumors. My philosophy of medical therapy is to provide personalized and evidence based treatment to my patients.
