Bio

I am double boarded in both general surgery and vascular surgery. I have extensive experience in both open and endovascular surgery, and I have particular expertise in venous disease. I have served in overseas medical missions work in Africa with World Medical Missions - an evangelistic Christian missions organization.

Specialties
