About Me

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist with expertise in providing anesthesia to cancer patients. My major area of interest is caring for patients who are undergoing surgery for liver cancer, and I am the anesthesia team leader for Memorial Sloan Kettering’s hepatobiliary team.

I perform anesthesia techniques such as low central venous pressure (LCVP) anesthesia and hemodilution, both of which ensure that patients lose less blood and need fewer transfusions during liver surgery.

Presently I am very interested in how fluid therapy can reduce problems before, during, and after surgery to promote the long-term survival of our patients.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.


Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
