  • I am a board certified General Surgeon specializing in Laparoscopic “Videoscopic” Surgery for hernias and gallbladders. I also perform surgery for Breast Lumps and Cancer, and removal of skin lesions and skin cancers. I attended Creighton University School of Medicine and completed five years of general surgery training at Saint Louis University Hospital.

    My goal is to increase patient benefits by decreasing the size of surgical incisions and increasing the compatibility of synthetic and biological materials used in surgery. These efforts result in less pain; faster recovery; and longer, more positive results
