About Me

Medical Director, Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Memorial Healthcare System 

I am an expert in transoral robotic surgery, and treat patients with cancer of the mouth, throat and voice box, as well as other illnesses within the skull base, head and neck.

I pursued a career in medicine after my father's illness and death, when I experienced firsthand the impact a surgeon could have on patients and their families. I decided then to become a doctor who supported patients both inside and out of the operating room. I am known for treating patients as family and maintain an open door policy that allows me to work closely with patients as they undergo treatment.
 
I graduated with honors from Ponce Medical School in Puerto Rico in 2001 and completed specialty training in Otolaryngology at University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine. I was dual fellowship trained in head and neck oncology from University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

In 2010, I became the first formally trained fellow in transoral robotic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Health System – the first of its kind after the FDA approved robotic surgery treatment of head and neck cancers. I performed the first transoral robotic surgery in Latin America in 2011.
