I am a surgeon who specializes in treating cancers of the chest. These types of cancers include lung cancer, esophageal cancer, thymic tumors, neuroendocrine tumors, and mesothelioma. I have experience in using the latest technology to diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases of the lung, esophagus, and chest wall. I perform these operations through small incisions with the goal of minimizing discomfort and accelerating recovery. I also focus on techniques and procedures to improve symptoms and quality of life in people with advanced cancer. Working with my colleagues in medical and radiation oncology, we emphasize treatment plans that are unique and are tailored to each patient’s needs.

I also have an interest in benign conditions such as anti-reflux procedures, hiatal hernia repair, and surgery for achalasia. Once again, I believe in using a minimally invasive approach in order to help people heal quickly and return to their daily activities.

A significant portion of my time is also spent performing scientific research to better understand how tumors form and investigate new ways to treat them. Using a patient-centered approach, I am working to design new models to study cancer and then use these experimental models to develop better treatments. It is my hope that discoveries made in the laboratory will result in more effective therapies and will ultimately help to cure people afflicted by these diseases.
