Medical Director, Pediatric and Adult Surgical Kidney Transplant
Chief, Memorial Solid Organ Transplant Institute
I specialize in treating patients with kidney and liver failure; remove benign and malignant tumors of the liver and the biliary tract; and specialize in minimally invasive removal of kidneys for kidney donation in transplantation or otherwise.
I felt the value of community service and the desire to help people early on. My father, a general surgeon, focused on personal patient care and has been a great role model to me. Now, as a transplant surgeon myself, I cherish the impact my work has on my patients. I have become close with many of them, as we continue to celebrate their “transplant birthdays” together. Undergoing an organ transplant is life changing – not only for the patient but also for their families and their loved ones. Watching their transformation inspires me to work harder, despite a difficult and taxing schedule.
I love working at Memorial Healthcare System because our comprehensive team works in partnership to provide excellent care to all the patients. I have earned a reputation for taking on the most challenging cases and I couldn’t do it without my “Memorial team.” We work closely together to ensure that patients’ unique needs are met and we utilize our robust resource system to provide high-quality care. Our goal is to make your journey as easy as possible and help you live your very best life.
