Esophageal and gastric surgery
I believe in providing state of the art care and at the same time helping patients make individualized care decisions. I also believe that surgical care, even for cancer, can usually be provided less invasively, and therefore patients are able to get on with life (and other treatments) more quickly.”
My specialties are esophageal cancer care and surgery, gastric surgery, general surgery and hernia repair. I am a board-certified surgeon and chief of general surgery and director of surgical specialties at the Esophageal and Gastric Diseases Clinic at UW Medical Center.
What’s your approach to cancer care?
My philosophy is to provide you and your family with patient-focused care and communication about the most effective, least invasive surgical treatments. Through minimally invasive techniques for diseases of the esophagus and stomach, we can reduce your recovery time and discomfort. My extensive experience in advanced minimally-invasive procedures and techniques have been pioneered and introduced here in the Pacific Northwest.
