I’m an interventional pulmonologist treating patients with lung cancer and complex airway disorders. I specialize in managing pulmonary nodules, lung tumors, pleural effusions and airway stenosis. The collaborative environment at The James is truly what sets it apart, and I enjoy working with other cancer experts to develop comprehensive solutions and treatment plans.

A relatively new field, interventional pulmonology focuses on the use of advanced diagnostic techniques to treat lung and chest conditions. My specific focus is in lung cancer diagnosis through bronchoscopic techniques that include endobronchial ultrasound and navigational bronchoscopy. At The James, we utilize the latest technologies to offer the best care possible.

Research is an important part of my career. I continue to seek out ways to improve cancer therapies and make advances in early detection of lung cancer. I hope my work can ultimately bring us closer to a cancer-free world.

Consulting and Related Relationships

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
