I am a practicing Cardiothoracic surgeon at Tufts Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Tufts University School of Medicine. My clinical interests include general thoracic and foregut surgery, minimally invasive thoracic surgery, and surgical robotics. I am committed to providing cutting-edge, patient-centered care for the wide range of thoracic disorders and diseases including lung cancer, benign lung disease, esophageal cancer, GERD and hiatal hernias, and esophageal motility disorders using new technologies and ever smaller incisions.
