About

Bio

As a General Surgeon, with ample experience in Emergency Surgical Procedures and formal education in Surgical Critical Care, I have the opportunity to care for patients with severe abdominal, thoracic and soft tissue infections; also to stabilize and operate in victims of penetrating trauma and severe accidents during Motor Vehicle collisions, falls from heights, and workplace or industrial mishaps. In addition, I have the opportunity to lead a busy clinic and elective surgery practice focused in hernia surgery, biliary pathology, anti-reflux procedures, skin and soft tissue lesions and tumors, and many other conditions within the scope of General Surgery.

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.
