About this doctor:

Philosophy of Care:
I provide expert consultation of all conditions within colon and rectal surgery in discrete and compassionate manner. I believe that a well-informed patient is an empowered patient. I ensure that my explanation and counseling is thorough and clear for the patient. I use minimally invasive techniques, whenever appropriate, to minimize surgical trauma and postoperative pain.
