Grounded in the elective relationship with patients, I work to optimize patients before surgery, select the right operation for the patient’s needs and interests, and execute a technically perfect procedure with an emphasis on multimodality pain control and close communication.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, skiing and watching videos of robotic surgery. With the arrival of snow I love backcountry skiing. This year I look forward to taking my wife and two boys skiing at Winter Park.
