What we do
I have introduced the use of the DaVinci Robot to my practice and use it in those cases where extreme precision is required and in difficult cases where access is critical. This technology continues to advance and allows physicians to perform more difficult cases in a more controlled environment. During your evaluation we will consider using these techniques if your surgical condition is one that qualifies to be treated in this manner.
I am committed to care for the breast cancer patients using the team approach. Our team includes breast radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologist, and plastic surgeons. We offer a comprehensive and complete treatment of breast cancer. We also have a nurse navigator to facilitate, coordinate and expedite care. We thrive to make the healing experience as easy as possible and inform the patient of all the treatment alternatives available, so that the pt can make an informed decision when picking the type of procedure and treatment modality that they would like to pursue.
The spectrum of general surgery encompasses a broad range of procedures and services. I offer the pt endoscopic procedures (EGD and colonoscopy), hernia repair, gallbladder surgery, reflux surgery, breast, colon and skin surgery. We try to use the newest surgical techniques and minimally invasive procedures when indicated in order to minimize the impact on the patient and expedite their path to recovery. I have practiced general surgery for 15 years and have expertise in many areas.
