My goal as a surgeon is to treat all of my patients like I would my own family. Utilizing a patient-centered approach, a major component of the patient-physician relationship is to establish trust and to work together to accomplish a desired goal. My role includes providing information about a patient’s condition or diagnosis and defining options of treatment (both surgical and non-surgical) available to manage a patient’s individual condition. With all of my patient’s, I seek to apply my education, experience, and skills to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is individualized to that person and may include open surgical, minimally invasive or endovascular techniques, and medical management to treat any condition in the safest way possible.
I live in Fort Collins with my wife, two children, dog, and two cats. When not working, I enjoy hiking, cooking, skiing, and traveling.
