I aim to provide the best possible care taking into consideration the individual patient’s specific cancer and treatment goals. Surgery is just one aspect of the team based integrated multidisciplinary care we strive to deliver.

In my spare time, I enjoy living all of Colorado’s adventures with my wife and two children.

Clinical interest for patients

My clinical interests apply to the broad field of Surgical Oncology with emphasis on Gastrointestinal Cancers (Esophagus, Stomach, Colon, Rectum), Melanoma, and Sarcoma. I am a firm believer in delivering a multidisciplinary care team approach designed to best suit the individual patient situation. I am also a strong believer in advancing medical knowledge through both clinical and translational research and actively participate in many national and local trials striving to improve cancer outcomes.

Research interest for patients

My research interests are primarily focused on understanding and overcoming tumor induced immune suppression. Along with my research colleagues, we have active investigations intent on discovering how tumors shut down the immune response to the cancer and more importantly, find ways to prevent this from occurring. In addition, I work closely with other cancer researchers in developing and applying targeted and immunotherapies therapies for GI tumors, Melanoma and Sarcoma.
