About Me

What I Do at MSK
  • Attending Radiologist
Get To Know Me

I am an interventional radiologist who uses CT, MRI, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, and other image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures. I am passionate about using imaging to avoid the need for an operation. This lets people with cancer have faster recoveries and enhances their quality of life. The procedures I can perform include venous access; drainages of abscesses, fluid collections, and obstructed systems; peripheral angiography; and tumor embolization. I have been practicing radiology at MSK since 2000.

My primary focus is the minimally invasive treatment of tumors involving the liver and bile ducts. This includes embolotherapy — killing the tumor by blocking the arteries that supply it — and ablation — the application of extreme heat or cold directly into tumors to kill tumor cells — for primary and metastatic liver tumors. I also perform procedures to treat blocked bile ducts in the liver that can cause symptoms of jaundice, infection, and itching. As a member of the Hepatobiliary Disease Management Team, I work with my colleagues from different specialties to provide the best cancer care possible. My research interests include hepatocellular carcinoma and biliary intervention.

I am a trustee of the American Board of Radiology. This position involves creating and delivering the certifying exam for diagnostic radiologists and the new interventional radiology residency.

I also serve on the hepatobiliary panel of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which guides patient care. I co-wrote its principles of locoregional therapy for hepatocellular carcinoma.

Working at MSK is extremely rewarding because of the shared mission of all our staff to deliver top-notch care. I enjoy working with people with cancer because we have the same goal: beating cancer. I am proud to work here and am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with an outstanding team of doctors, nurses, and technologists.
