About Me

As a head and neck surgeon, I enjoy the challenges of revision surgery. I specialize in managing the care for individuals with difficult sinonasal diseases. I recognize that each patient is different and thus requires an accurate diagnosis with a well-developed and individualized treatment plan.

The Department of Otolaryngology at The Ohio State University is a winning team invested in providing the best patient care in the world. We embrace technology and lead the field in new and minimally invasive approaches to the orbit and skull base. I encourage you to come see what we are all about by making an appointment with one of our physicians.

In my free time, I enjoy relaxing with my family and attending Ohio State football games. I also enjoy the physical challenges of swimming, skiing and cross fit.
