About Me

I’ve been fascinated with medicine from an early age, so I knew since childhood that I would one day become a doctor. My work as a minimally invasive surgeon allows me to marry my passions for medicine, technology, and innovation.

Primarily, I care for people who have cancerous and noncancerous conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. My patients may have stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, stomach polyps, or they may require surgery for hernia revision or complex abdominal wall hernias. Additionally, I can offer therapeutic flexible endoscopy for conditions that may not require surgery, such as achalasia, which is a swallowing disorder.

I always seek the best available technology for the care of my patients. I want to push the envelope of cancer treatments by approaching complex cancer operations using minimally invasive techniques, such as laparoscopy and therapeutic endoscopy. I am skilled in using minimally invasive methods for general surgery and oncological procedures, and I use these techniques when it’s the best option for my patients.

Above all else, I focus on each person as an individual—doing what’s right for that person with the right treatment at the right time. It is critically important to me that I bond with every patient. When people come to see me, it’s because they have a significant health problem that requires them to entrust me with their care and their health, and I do not take this lightly.

As part of NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, I participate in all of our clinical trials on gastrointestinal cancers. My other research interests include improving minimally invasive surgery techniques and the overall quality of hospital care. I am an active member of many surgical societies, including the American College of Surgeons, the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (SSAT), the American Hepato-Pancreatic-Biliary Association (AHPBA), and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), for which I serve on the Board of Governors and am a representative to the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates.
