About

Bio

I am a Board Certified General surgeon with many years of experience in a large number of procedures. I have been blessed with a very busy practice and extensive experience in many different procedures. I also have a passion for minimally invasive procedures and robotic surgery. I am very involved in the general wellbeing of my patients and interested in physical fitness and nutrition as well in the healing process. I believe that our bodies act as a fine machine and we need to take care of every aspect in order to have optimal results in surgery and recovery.

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.

Fantastic surgeon. Caring and talented. Impeccable care, respected by his peers and unparalleled ethics. If he can't take care of your problem, he will find someone who can.
