Clinical Expertise
I specialize in laparoscopic and robotic-assisted bariatric surgery including sleeve gastrectomy, traditional and single anastomosis duodenal switch (DS-SA, SIPS), Lap-Band and Roux-en-y gastric bypass.
Credentials
Board Certified in General Surgery
Experience
I have presented on robotic bariatric surgery at national meetings. I was part of a team that presented one of the first totally robotic modified (or single-anastomosis, SIPS, DS-SA) duodenal switch procedures at the Society of American and Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) meeting in Houston, March 2017. I have also presented on the use of robotics in revision bariatric surgery at the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO) and SAGES.
