Specialties: Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine

Clinical Interest for Patients: My clinical interests are to help patients find pre-cancerous and cancerous growths early with endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and to assist treatment by correctly staging and removing with minimally invasive endoscopic procedure instead of surgery if possible. Those lesions include early Barrett's esophagus with dysplasia, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, carcinoid, difficult colon polyp, and colon cancer. I also perform special endoscopic procedures called Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and EUS for pancreas and bile duct problems. Pancreas and bile duct cancers need careful evaluation with endoscopic procedures for looking at the ducts and tumors (ERCP and EUS) to guide therapy and to relieve symptoms. I work closely with oncologists and surgeons to ensure that each patient receives the best treatment plan, assisting with endoscopic procedures. I also offer minimally invasive endoscopic treatments for benign disease, such as Achalasia, Zenker's diverticulum, and benign strictures (narrowing).
