He was an early adopter of the da Vinci Robot platform and immersed himself in training on the da Vinci in 2012, now having completed over 2,400 robotic cases, while continuing a full general surgery practice, with a high volume of hernia repair, EGD/colonoscopy, mastectomy, colectomy, gastric sleeve, appendectomy, cholecystectomy as well as other common general procedures. Robotically, he specializes in hernia repair, gastric sleeves and anti-reflux surgeries. He currently serves as the Medical Director of Robotic Services at Flowers Hospital.

They are the proud parents of two daughters, Michaela and Madison. ***Note: Please allow 24 hours for email response to inquiry.
