My clinical interests include the acute and chronic care of patients with burn injuries, neonatal surgery, and GI surgery including the care of patients with imperforate anus, Hirschsprung’s disease, and GI conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease.
Families are integral to the healing of their children no matter how complex the diagnosis or whether it can be cared for at home or in the hospital. I endeavor to include and involve the family as much as possible in the care of their child’s condition to promote long-term treatment success and family comfort in taking care of their sick child.
