I grew up on the rural central coast of California, where I attended college and medical school. I came north for my general surgery training at OHSU, and stayed to do a fellowship in minimally-invasive complex gastrointestinal surgery. My wife and I have made Oregon our home because we love the relaxed culture, warm people, great food, and fresh air.
About my practice
I foster strong relationships with my patients through open communication so that I can stay focused on the things that matter to them.I perform minimally-invasive techniques that treat morbid obesity, acid reflux, achalasia, and other diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon. I also provide minimally-invasive solid organ surgery, including diseases of the adrenal glands and spleen. My practice is broad enough to include some general surgical procedures, including operations for hernias and gallbladder disease.
How I thrive
I take a lot of satisfaction from seeing our members thrive. Outside the hospital, I try to keep life simple and enjoy being outdoors with my wife and dog.
