Clinical Expertise:

My area of expertise is to treat surgical diseases of the chest, as it pertains to the lung, esophagus, mediastinum, pleura, and diaphragm. My clinical focus has been placed on complex thocacic cancer cases, minimally-invasive foregut/esophageal surgery, VATS lung and mediastinal surgery, and the surgical management of mesothelioma. I have also had specialized training in treating many different types of benign thoracic surgical problems, such as GERD and hyperhidrosis.
