About Me

I am a thoracic surgeon at Memorial Healthcare System where I treat patients with lung cancer, chest wall diseases, diseases of the mediastinum, trachea-bronchial disease and acute perforations of the esophagus.

While I am a surgeon, I do not believe that surgery is right for every patient. Some patients are not candidates for surgery. Surgical decisions should be evidence-based and the application of excellent surgical judgment.

In the process of performing complex operations, collaborative medical teams – including medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists and intensive care physicians – are important. This leads to better patient outcomes and overall results.

My relationship with patients extends well beyond the operating room. I love seeing how regaining health can transform patients’ lives. I believe long-term care and follow-up aid are necessary to ensure that we recognize a recurrence, especially in patients who are battling cancer.

While I have been a surgeon for more than 30 years, I am still passionate about learning from colleagues, medical meetings and patients. I also enjoy serving on various hospital committees where our work enhances hospital operations and overall patient care.

Before joining Memorial, I served as chief of thoracic surgery for the Boston VA Hospital System, was an attending surgeon at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, (also in Boston) and was affiliated with Harvard Medical School.
