Professional Statement
My main goal as a physician is to have a comprehensive understanding of each patient I care for, and together develop a plan of action with common goals and expectations. Each patient is treated as a unique individual and their treatment plan is developed with a multi-disciplinary approach based on the patient's needs and established evidence based guidelines. There are three fundamental steps I use to achieve excellent results: Preoperative care with risk stratification and optimization for planned operations and procedures. Meticulous operative technique utilizing advanced medical technology when clinically indicated. Comprehensive postoperative care to ensure rapid recovery with clearly defined short and long term follow up plans. In adhering to these guidelines I am confident that my patients can achieve the best possible outcome.
