A CU Medicine provider.
I strive to provide the best surgical and clinical care for my patients. I believe in devoting time to patients and family explaining and discussing prognosis, long-term expectations as well as surgical reconstruction and possible future implications. I also believe in following our patients through out life.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, watching good movies, and practicing outside sports (running, biking, swimming). I also enjoy travelling the world to try to improve colorectal care for children everywhere.
