Biography & Education

Biography
I like to take a full body approach to patient care, recognizing that the effects of a patients disease can be taxing to both their physical and emotional well being. I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disease of the colon, rectum and anus. This includes an interest in minimally invasive surgical approaches to colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and diverticulitis, pelvic floor disorders such as fecal incontinence, colonoscopy and basic anorectal disorders.
