I completed my undergraduate studies with a dual degree in biology and psychology, following that I went to medical school in Buffalo, NY. I then completed a 5 year General Surgery residency and became board certified. After that I completed a Head & Neck Cancer fellowship for one year. Following my Head & Neck training I did a Plastic Surgery residency and became board certified in that as well. Now my practice focuses on the treatment and reconstruction of Head and Neck cancer, as well as breast reconstruction- autologous options such as DIEP flaps as well as expander implant reconstruction. I take great pride in spending time with and educating patients on both their disease as well as ALL of their options.
