Focus of Work


My principle interests lie in the field of pediatric liver disease and disorders of the mesenteric venous circulation. These include extrahepatic portal vein thrombosis and congenital portosystemic shunts (Abernethy malformation). I also have an interest in biliary atresia, hepatic tumors in children and pediatric liver transplantation.
