Biography
I became a Urologist because the field combines cutting-edge medicine and advanced surgical technology with the opportunity to help people. My goal is to provide patients with evidence-based treatment options so that they can make a decision that best fits their goals and beliefs. During my training, I took a particular interest in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and kidney stones. I completed fellowship training for advanced laser surgery for BPH (Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP)) and surgical management of complex kidney stones via minimally-invasive techniques. I look forward to working in collaboration with my patients toward improving their urologic health and quality of life. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, cooking, hiking, barbecue, outdoor concerts, and reading.
