Clinical Interest for Patients
My many clinical interests include surgery for simple and complex abdominal wall hernias.
My goal is to provide optimal, safe surgical care for patients with as minimally invasive an approach as feasible. I strongly believe that excellent patient communication eases anxiety and allays concerns, optimizing the patient's ability to recover.
