Biography

Biography

I chose to pursue thoracic surgery because it balances the most technically innovative procedures with critical care to help mend patients. I strive to offer the most advanced, often minimally invasive, techniques to help treat patients in a compassionate, caring manner. Outside of work, I enjoy outdoor activities.
