About Me

I am a classically trained general surgeon serving patients at the Institute of Esophageal and Reflux Surgery in Lone Tree, Colorado, a part of SOFI Research, LLC. Whether in the military or a small community hospital, I always focus on treating patients with the latest techniques and technologies. In 2021, I moved to Denver with an increased focus on treating foregut diseases. Throughout my career, I have partnered with medical industries to facilitate the development, application, and advocacy of medical technologies and procedures. I am also comfortable being at the forefront of providing the most up-to-date medical care available in a clinic, operating room, or telemedicine suite, and enjoy sharing my experiences with those eager to learn.
