Curriculum Vitae

Current Positions:

Professor and Vice-Chairman for Operations & Finance, Hiram C. Polk, Jr, MD Department of Surgery

Clinical Focus and Research:

My clinical focus is on multi-disciplinary approaches to the treatment of tumors of the liver, bile duct, pancreas and sarcomas as well as general surgical oncology.  I work diligently with our team to ensure that each patient receives compassionate care that is state-of-the-art.

My research interests include clinical trials of new methods of treating pancreatic cancer and bile duct cancer.  Our research team has also had interest in upper gastrointestinal cancers and metastatic colon cancer.
