I am a board-certified anesthesiologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. My areas of expertise include providing anesthesia care to people with head and neck cancers. As a member of our Lactation Task Force, I also support women who are breastfeeding around the time of surgery or a procedure.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
