Physician Biography

I am a hepatobiliary (liver and bile duct) and liver transplant surgeon. I care for and operate on patients with liver cancer and/or liver cirrhosis. Patients with reserved liver functions are good candidates for removal of the cancer from the liver. I perform liver transplantation for patients with liver cancer and advanced liver cirrhosis. I work with other specialists including hepatology, radiology and medical oncology which allows us to serve our patients in an efficient fashion.
