My Passion for Healthcare

I was drawn to the field of pediatric surgery because children are not just "small adults." They have some unique problems that require special surgical management. It is a very special thing for me to have the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life.

My Clinical Focus

My clinical focus is in all areas of pediatric surgery, from removing lumps and bumps to correcting complex congenital anomalies.
