A CU Medicine provider.
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.
In my spare time, I enjoy snowboarding, music, soccer, and travel.
