Area of Interest

Clinically, I perform hepatobiliary surgery, regional cancer therapies including HIPEC (Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy), surgery for peritoneal diseases, surgery for gastric cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, and colorectal cancer (particularly metastatic).

My research focuses on improving outcomes after complex hepatobiliary surgery and regional cancer therapies. I conduct large database research in hopes of finding areas for quality improvement and identify disparities in care. I am proud to serve the diverse patient population of North Carolina.
