What made you choose oncology?
I am an expert in minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery, treatment of colorectal cancer and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease. I am also UW Medicine’s chief of colorectal surgery and a UW associate professor of surgery. As a colorectal surgeon, I specialize in resection for colon, rectal and anal cancers, as well as minimally invasive colorectal cancer surgery techniques.
I work with patients with gastrointestinal diseases as a board-certified surgeon at SCCA. I’m also a member of multiple surgical associations and serve on several committees for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons and the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract.
