About

Bio

I am a surgical oncologist. Following medical school at the U of Kansas, I trained in surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital with a fellowship in Surgical Oncology at the Surgery Branch of the NCI, NIH. Career highlights include teaching positions at Johns Hopkins & Mass General Hospital.

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.
