Welcome to my Web page. I am pleased to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you a bit about my practice.
I am a natvie Southern Californian who grew up hre and in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I wanted to be a surgeon since tenth grade, because I enjoy working with my hands, solving problems, and helping others. I work with an outstanding team of surgical oncology fellows, general surgery residents, and other colleagues who specialize in giving sophisticated care to patients in need.
In general, I take care of patients with a number of different cancers, but my particular interests are in tumors that have spread to the liver, and tumors of the stomach, pancreas, and biliary tree. I feel privileged that patients entrust me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Above all, I enjoy spending time with my children. I love camping, mountain biking, wine tasting, traveling, exercising, and just tooling around at home.
