“I fell in love with surgery as a medical student at UAB after seeing the amazing impact it could have to restore people’s health. I completed a busy general surgery residency at the University of Cincinnati where I learned to care for patients with a full range of general surgical diseases and also had the opportunity to perform and publish surgical research to help advance the field. After that, my fellowship training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia gave me extensive experience with the most current techniques to perform complex abdominal surgery in the least invasive way possible. This included surgery for weight loss, acid reflux, hernias, and multiple types of cancer.”

“I am thrilled to now be able to return home to Alabama and join the surgeons at Anniston General Surgery Center, who share my passion for providing state-of-the-art care with the highest level of service to our patients.”
