About

Bio

I specialize in weight loss surgery including the sleeve, bypass, band, and POSE. I also correct reflux with the LINX procedure and the Nissen wrap for hiatal hernia. I am very experienced at removing gallbladders and hemorrhoids and repairing hernias.

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.

Yes: Children can get gallstones. Some blood disorders like sickle cell disease or congenital hypercholesterolemia can increase a child's risk of stone formation. The treatment is usually the same as for adults, namely laparoscopic cholecystectomy or gallbladder removal.
A 24-year-old member asked:

Not really: Gallstones in the gallbladder under the liver cause nausea and pain. They can block the ducts or tubes that drain the liver or pancreas causing jaundice or pancreatitis if they pass from the gallbladder to these tubes. Some drugs have been used to dissolve small stones; but the treatment is long, and the stones return when the drug is stopped. Ercp can be used to remove stones in the bile ducts.
A 25-year-old member asked:

No: Cholelithiasis or gallstones result from a poorly functioning gallbladder or too much cholesterol in bile. The bile becomes concentrated when the gallbladder doesn't empty properly, and tiny stones settle out in the gallbladder. The stones can get bigger, even filling the entire gallbladder. B-12 is generally not involved. Some blood disorders, sickle cell, are associated with gallstones.
