Over the several years that I have been practicing as a general surgeon, I have developed a philosophy of what patient care and surgery means to me. First and most important is that I am treating an individual human being. Treating you is a privilege I do not take lightly! Simply, I treat my patients as I would want my own family to be treated. When I begin caring for my patients, I determine whether each patient will benefit from my surgical intervention. It is often a more difficult decision to NOT operate than it is to decide to operate. This is a decision we make together as we discuss your options. I believe patients should be completely educated concerning all of their options. To this end, prior to any procedures, we begin with a thorough and informative consultation. I work hard to ensure each patient knows what to expect throughout the entire process?from the beginning to full recovery.
