"I believe each patient deserves an individualized and comprehensive approach to their healthcare management plan. By combining careful diagnosis and a patient's expectations - along with my expertise and experience - a successful treatment outcome can be achieved together. Healing can be reached through education, counsel and direct treatment when each patient is a member of their own treatment team."
I earned my medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I completed my residency in general surgery at the University of California, Riverside in Southern California.
I am skilled in a variety of diagnoses and procedures including but not limited to: gallbladder, appendix and bowel obstruction surgery; breast - benign and cancerous diagnoses; hernia repair - umbilical, inguinal, incisional and hiatal/paraesophageal; skin and soft tissue - benign and cancerous lesion removal; anorectal - hemorrhoids, fistula and pilonidal; colon - cancer, diverticulitis and colonoscopy/upper endoscopy; and anti-reflux surgery.
My areas of interest include minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
I am married to my wonderful wife, Christina, and she stays home raising our three children. Outside of the clinic, I am a huge Packer's fan and enjoy golf, church/bible study and exercise/fitness.
