About Me

As a urologist, I specialize in genitourinary trauma and reconstruction. I enjoy being able to directly improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from conditions that arose due to other disorders or treatments for preexisting conditions. I also bridge the gap for children with urologic conditions as they transition to adulthood. I believe in treating my patients as if they were my own family, and create treatment plans based on my patients’ individual and unique sets of needs and goals.

My favorite part about Ohio State is the collegial environment. Working at an academic medical center means there’s a strong emphasis placed on patient care, teaching and research. I enjoy the opportunity to build my expertise in all these areas.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, sailing and spending time outdoors.
