Focus of Work
My main focus the past 32 years has been perfecting sphincter-sparing approaches for rectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. I strive for the dual purpose of both curing the disease at hand, while also maintaining as normal a functional outcome as technically possible.
Optimizing the treatment of ColoRectal Cancer and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
I see patients with the entire spectrum of colorectal disorders, from the most straightforward anorectal conditions to the most complex pelvic malignancies.
