  • As Director of Liver transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery at University of Cincinnati, I specialize in malignant and non-malignant disorders of the liver, bile duct and pancreas. Our group is the largest hepatobiliary referral base in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. The liver transplant program is the only program in the region and performs more than 60 liver transplants per year with excellent results. Our research program focuses on understanding utilization and clinical care patterns of patients and improving the care of post transplant recipients.
