I wish to find the least invasive approach to provide the appropriate care of diseases of the foregut and intestine. Whether this is endoscopic, laparoscopic/thoracoscopic, robotic or when necessary open. Discussion includes not only the risks of surgical procedures, but lifestyle and nutrition needs that the needed surgery may create. I work in a fully integrated Bariatric program and use many of the same multimodal service techniques for the benefit of my intestinal surgery patients.

I am a native of Colorado and returned home after serving 10 years in the USAF.
