I am a general surgeon specializing in breast cancer surgery. My professional interests include breast cancer surgery and its multidisciplinary treatment, high-risk breast cancer treatment and laparoscopic surgery. I am also the co-medical director of the Piper Breast Center.
What is your practice philosophy? I believe in educating and empowering the patient to make the decision that is right for them regarding their surgical treatment. I am present to provide education based on my knowledge and expertise regarding treatment options, and to support you and answer your questions. Inevitably questions come up after the visit given the abundant information that comes with a diagnosis, particularly cancer, and I am always available to answer those questions.

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about keeping up with the ever-changing world of medicine. We have made so many exciting advances over the past 20 years of my career which have benefited the cancer patient and general surgical patients.
Something I have learned from my patients is a cancer diagnosis is life-altering but patients are smart, strong and very resilient.
With your visit at the Piper Breast Center you will have access to all specialists needed for comprehensive breast care in one place. We work closely to provide you with the diagnosis and treatment plan in a timely fashion.
