“Communication, education and compassionate care is the foundation of my surgical practice. We live in an era of exciting and sometimes overwhelming medical advances in surgical technique, imaging modalities and drug therapy. As a surgeon, I believe my role is to guide and educate my patients about their disease process and their surgical options."
