About Me

I am a pediatric general surgeon at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. I perform a wide variety of procedures but also specialize in minimally invasive surgery, thoracoscopic lung surgery to treat congenital lung diseases, neonatal surgery and procedures to treat ovarian disease.

Each surgical case is as unique as the child we are treating. I devote a lot of time to getting to know my patients and their families. Then, together, we explore all of the possible treatment options to find the best fit for your child.

At Joe DiMaggio, you will be treated like family. We are driven not by numbers, but by the satisfaction of healing and helping the patients we have devoted our lives to caring for.

In addition to providing patient care, I participate in surgical research projects and serve on the National American Pediatric Surgery Association Education Committee. I am also a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
