Care Philosophy
As a pediatric surgeon we are often asked to care for complex medical conditions in some of our most vulnerable patients. Surgery can be stressful not only to our pediatric patients, but also their families. Therefore, I believe in treating the patient and family as a unit with the goals of improving surgical outcomes and strengthening our longstanding professional relationships.
