My Passion for Healthcare

As a pediatric surgeon, I have the honor and privilege to take care of an innocent and sometimes unfortunate patient who still has a long, fulfilling future ahead of them. The ability and responsibility to help a child and their family to recover from an illness, congenital defect, or poor quality of life is what I enjoy the most about pediatric surgery. I also have the opportunity to be involved with my patient as they grow up which is rewarding. Having this purpose drives me to provide the best care I can for my patients and enhance the community that my family and I live in.

My Clinical Focus

I have experience managing all aspects of neonatal and pediatric surgery. I believe minimally invasive surgery is important if possible for all the benefits it provides. I enjoy being strongly involved with our oncology team and the opportunity to help patients with cancer. In addition, I perform surgeries on newborns with congenital defects. I enjoy helping these infants and their families achieve a normal life. I specialize in pediatric surgical issues involving the neck, chest and gastrointestinal tract.
