Additional Information

I am a dual board certified and fellowship trained Vascular and Interventional Radiologist. I am a clinical assistant professor at the University of Florida. I have experience in private practice prior to academic practice. I also have prior expert witness experience. I currently work at a large Level 1 trauma center, and my hospital is also a regional liver and kidney transplant center. I have a large experience with TIPS and cirrhosis / portal hypertension. I also have experience with liver transplant complications. A portion of my practice is devoted to treating DVT and PE. I perform DVT thrombectomy and IVC filter placement and retrieval. I have experience with complex IVC filter retrieval including removal of IVC filters protruding into the aorta (artery), bowel, and spine. I have removed “permanent” filters as well as fragmented/broken filters. I have experience with thrombolysis for DVT/PE. I also perform endovascular reconstruction of occluded veins including stenting. I have a strong interventional oncology practice, and I perform ablations including IRE (irreversible electroporation, aka “nanoknife”), cryoablation, microwave ablation, and bone RFA ablation. I regularly treat patients with rare sarcomas. I perform Y90 radioembolization (selective internal radiation therapy), TACE (transarterial chemoembolization), and bland embolization. I treat a number of cancers including hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, metastatic colorectal cancer, neuroendocrine metastasis, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and other rare cancers. I place ports for chemotherapy. I perform embolization and sclerotherapy of AVMs (arterial venous malformations), low flow venous malformations, venolymphatic malformations, hemangiomas, etc. I continue to practice diagnostic radiology as well, and I regularly interpret radiology exams including xray, ultrasound, MRI, and CT. I have experience with PET/CT with my oncology patients.
