For each patient, each treatment is individualized and supplemented with a strong knowledge base of scientific and evidence-based research. In my practice, your voice will be listened. I provide compassionate care and an environment where there is shared decision-making with you, the patient, to help guide treatment plans.
When I’m not working, my son (born in December 2022), dog, and I usually try to be outdoors and as active as possible. We either will be hiking, checking out the farmers’ market and local stores, heading to the mountains to discover a new town, or attending a class for my baby.

My focus is primarily endocrine surgery with some general surgery as well. For thyroids, I do thyroid biopsies, ultrasounds, thyroidectomies for any thyroid disorders (Graves' disease, multinodular goiters, Hashimotos, thyroid cancers, recurrent thyroid cancer), as well as modified radical neck dissections for extensive thyroid cancers.
For parathyroids, I perform minimally invasive parathyroid explorations for primary, secondary, and tertiary hyperparathyroidism, parathyroid cancer, parathyroid adenomas, and recurrent or persistent hyperparathyroidism.
When working with adrenals, I'll perform adrenalectomies laparoscopically or robotic assisted for various adrenal disorders. With general surgery cases, I perform removal of soft tissue or skin masses and do most of my abdominal cases robotic assisted.
