  • I am a board-certified urologist who offers general urological care as well as advanced clinical training in the management of complex kidney stones and laparoscopic/robotic treatment of urological cancers. My goal is to provide my patients a medical and/or surgical approach that is not only at the forefront of urological practice, but also specific to their individual needs. I believe that the best care is given in the context of a compassionate and mutually trusting long-term relationship.

    In addition to my clinical practice, in a broader context I am interested in innovation medicine and multi-disciplinary problem solving, as they relate to disruptive technology, business concepts, and innovative care delivery systems.
