I strive to provide my patients with excellent surgical results and outcomes but above all to have the patient feel safe, respected, and educated throughout the surgical process. I believe this requires expert surgical counseling regarding surgical and non-surgical options available and a tailored treatment plan to the patient's needs, expectations, and associated medical problems.
My passion is the science and clinical practice of bariatric surgery for both adolescents and adults. I received my medical training at the Ohio State University and completed general surgery residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital/Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. I then completed a fellowship in Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at the University of Nebraska. I have a PhD in Pathobiology and Molecular Medicine with a particular interest in the hormonal changes induced after bariatric surgery that are responsible not only for sustained weight loss but also improve multiple medical problems, including type 2 diabetes.
