Biography & Education

My goal as a surgeon and oncologist is to maximize the chances of cure and remission while attempting to preserve the patient's quality of life and dignity as much as possible through the process by utilizing proven, effective therapies and emphasizing a minimally invasive robotic approach to surgery whenever feasible and possible. To provide a level of care I would want for my own family members entails a strong commitment to my profession, compassion towards my patients, and a passion for lifelong learning which allows me to stay ahead of the curve on medical and surgical therapies of cancer and complex gynecological problems.
