Biography & Interests

Care Philosophy

My whole focus is excellent and compassionate clinical care. I believe that caring excellently for my pediatric patients mandates an attitude of lifelong learning as well as open communication with and involvement of families and caregivers.

Clinical Interests

My focus is on providing the best and most compassionate surgical care to pediatric patients with problems that may include chest wall deformities, chest masses, pediatric cancer, inguinal hernias, undescended testicles, branchial clefts, and neonatal congenital deformities

Volunteer Activities

I am honored and excited to be involved in training general and pediatric surgeons in Subsaharan Africa. I am privileged to spend one month each year in Cameroon, and am actively involved with an organization that seeks to train 100 general surgeons to practice in Africa by 2020.
