  • My goal is to provide expert, compassionate, and technologically advanced care to patients with diseases of the intestines and anorectum. My focus includes the laparoscopic treatment of colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. We have expertise in prevention strategies and identifying risk factors for colorectal cancer in younger patients, as well as outcomes analysis in colorectal surgery. I serve as the director of education and sits on the board of directors of the Susan Cohan Kasdas Foundation, for which he has created many health education programs. I am board certified in both general surgery and colorectal surgery and is a member of numerous medical societies.
