Experience
My fellowship training and clinical experience allow me to offer a broad scope of bariatric surgical intervention, including sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, Duodenal Switch and numerous bariatric revisional procedures - all via laparoscopic surgery. I also perform diagnostic and therapeutic upper endoscopy. In addition, I am also trained and experienced in offering the full range of care for patients with GERD, including diagnostic workup, medical management of symptoms, diagnosis and management of Barrett's esophagus, and surgical intervention (lap Nissen/Toupet fundoplication, LINX placement, and gastric bypass), including revisions.
Philosophy
All patients are treated with respect and compassion. I want patients to, first, understand their disease. Only then are they prepared to discuss a treatment plan. I view myself as a partner with my patients in their medical care. My patients understand the reason for any diagnostic or therapeutic test or procedure, including the possible courses they may take, depending on the results. My two main diseases of focus (obesity and GERD) are underappreciated and poorly managed overall in our current health care environment. I treat my patients in accordance with the most updated medical information and with an appreciation for the impact their medical issues can cause. I work closely with other health care professionals to gain a better understanding of my patients' overall needs and best provide the high level of care they deserve.
Personal Information
I was born and raised in the Seattle area, and am the father of five children. When not at work, I can usually be found with one or more of my children nearby. I also enjoy triathlon, and watching Seattle sports.
In the Community
I help with youth programs through my church, supporting the development of intelligent, well-adjusted men and women.
