About

Bio

I am a Board Certified General Surgeon who has practiced full time in the area of Chronic Wound Management exclusively since 1997. I travel all over the world and teach wound care and related topics. I have numerous publications and provide expert consultations to the legal and investment communities. My goal is to educate my colleagues and the lay public on how best to help things heal and to avoid the use of "knee-jerk" antibiotic prescription as a panacea. Common sense diagnoses and treatments based on the best evidence and practices are what will best help our patients and our profession.

Specialties
