My Passion for Healthcare

My interest in pediatric surgery combines my interest in serving the community by providing access to high level surgical and trauma care for all children and the technical precision it takes to perform complex procedures on our smallest patients. I believe in a family centered approach in caring for children and that prioritizing the health of children and our most vulnerable patients has the ability to uplift the health of an entire community.

My Clinical Focus

What drew me to pediatric surgery is the breadth of procedures that we perform, from "lumps and bumps" to coordinating care of patients with complex congenital disorders. I am especially interested in expanding minimally invasive approaches to treatment as well as ECMO and management of congenital diaphragmatic hernias.
