Philosophy

Surgery is more than the technical science of operating. It is also an art, and it requires sound and humble judgement, exercised with compassion, and a never-ending focus on that which is most critical: the patient. Independent practice allows me to focus on personalized care. I am accountable primarily to my patients, not a corporate entity.  Guiding patients through their surgical journey is an honor and a tremendous responsibility. //aa
