Clinical Expertise


Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is straightforward: you and I are a team. We make all decisions together because we want the same things. Surgery is not the answer for everyone, but when surgery is the right decision, I consider it my duty to perform a technically excellent service for my patient.
