About Me

I come from a family of doctors and teachers. Though my childhood was full of inspiring role models, I first truly realized I wanted to be a doctor when I volunteered as a teenager to work for an ambulance corps in my hometown. Seeing first-hand the positive impact that medicine had on people convinced me this was my future. Thanks to this epiphany, each and every day is now a chance for me to make a difference in someone’s life.

I trained as a general surgeon and became especially interested in diseases of the circulation, which involve the arteries and veins. I completed a fellowship specializing in vascular and endovascular surgery in 2003. Timing is everything—I was extremely fortunate to be training during an era of great advances in technology for treating vascular diseases and, subsequently, became an expert in these techniques. What once required invasive procedures and lengthy hospital stays is now possible through minimally invasive procedures that allow patients to go home the same day.  

I quickly realized the importance of these technologies and embraced them, leading the charge by working with engineers to develop the next generation of endovascular devices. I am currently one of only a select number of surgeons performing fenestrated stent grafting for the management of an aortic aneurysm, which is a “ballooning” of the largest artery. This minimally invasive surgery preserves blood flow to arteries and reduces some risks associated with standard repair for people with complex aneurysms.

I treat every patient like he or she is a member of my family. Connecting with my patients is very important to me. Most have some degree of anxiety prior to surgery, so I make certain all of their questions are answered and they are comfortable with every aspect of the experience. Following surgery, I provide careful follow-up and develop strong postoperative relationships with my patients. As a mentor of mine once told me, “the art of caring for the patient, is caring for the patient.”
