About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I hope this information will be useful to you and make our future interactions a little more personal and pleasant.


I was born in Argentina and came to the United States in 1962. I received by bachelor's degree from USC and my MD from Loyola University in Chicago. I completed a five-year residency in surgery at Truman Medical Centers in Kansas City. I am board certified in surgery. In my spare time, I enjoy growing fruits and vegetables in my backyard. I’m also working on cataloguing and preserving family photos and films to share with my extended family.

About my practice

I’m the chairman of the Performance Improvement Committee, the Pharmacology and Therapeutics Committee, and the Product Council for Riverside Medical Center. I am also a proud member of our team of surgical providers there are 21 of us! We are dedicated to furthering knowledge and education, and helping to train future surgeons. The scope of my practice includes breast care, hernia and gallbladder surgery, and hemorrhoid and anal surgery.

How I thrive

I love to grow and cook fruits and vegetables. The times I spend in my garden are true relaxation moments. My wife and I love to travel to relax. We also have a granddaughter now, so a new phase in my life has begun.
