Why did you choose your specialty area?
I want/love to help people. I also want to be able to provide my patients with the most updated and clinically relevant surgical technology. Robotic laparoscopic surgery allows me to help/treat my patients in a minimally invasive manner, resulting in quicker recovery back to enjoying daily life.
How do you spend your spare time?
Going biking/hiking with my wife and daughters. Visiting wineries and learning more about the different types of wine. Listening to music (Pearl Jam!) and practicing my guitar playing so that I can sufficiently improve to have my daughters stay in the same room until I finish the song!
#1 health tip that you can offer:
Sometimes, acute threatening surgical conditions can present in a non-acute/indolent manner. Don’t ignore your symptoms, especially if they are persistent or worsening. Seek medical attention promptly. The sooner a condition is diagnosed and treated, the sooner you will recover in an uncomplicated manner.
