I am a pediatric surgeon with special training in surgical oncology and minimally invasive procedures. I am dedicated to the treatment of children with cancer, and I cannot imagine a more rewarding career. While I have the experience and training to treat children with any malignancy, my primary areas of interest are renal tumors, liver tumors, neuroblastoma, sarcomas, thyroid cancers, and the management of inherited colon cancer syndromes. When necessary and appropriate, I hope to expand the use of minimally invasive surgery in our patients.

I am very fortunate and proud to be a part of the multidisciplinary pediatric oncology team here at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Our pediatric surgeons, led by Dr. Michael La Quaglia, perform more pediatric cancer surgeries than any other center in the world. As a team we have a wealth of experience in the medical and surgical management of any pediatric malignancy, including large, complicated solid tumors in children.
