My experience as a surgeon includes many types of procedures. I provide state-of-the art care in hernia, bariatric and minimally invasive surgical treatments. Minimally invasive surgery can minimize discomfort for my patients and result in faster recovery times. I believe it is important to have my patients involved in their healthcare choices. I treat every patient as an individual and will work to achieve our common goals. I take time to explain procedures, listen to concerns, answer questions and closely follow their progress. I value the team concept of patient care that is part of working at Ohio State. It enables us to provide comprehensive care that offers the best results for every patient. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, attending Ohio State football games, and spending time with my wife and our two dogs.
