My expertise in minimally invasive surgery provides my patients with many treatment options. I specialize in the surgical and endoscopic treatment of general surgical conditions. This includes treating gastroesophageal reflux, achalsia and esophageal cancer.

I believe in providing patient-focused care. Listening and communicating clearly with my patients is very important to me. I strive to provide them with the most effective, least invasive treatment possible. This can help increase their comfort level and reduce recovery time from surgery.

I enjoy working in Ohio State's innovative and collaborative environment — and working to create a cancer-free world. We take a comprehensive and well-coordinated team approach to patient care. This fosters excellence at every level and the highest standards of surgical care.

When I'm not on the job, I like to relax with my family, read and enjoy the outdoors.
