- Morbid Obesity;
- Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery;
- Foregut Disorders;
- Pancreatic Cancer
- Hepatobiliary disease
- Minimally invasive surgery
- My clinical research covers a wide area of outcomes after bariatric surgery and emerging technology for the treatment of diabetes and obesity
- My lab research efforts are focused on an animal model of obesity and the molecular mechanism of diabetes and obesity; we are seeking answers that will lead to drug discovery and thereby translate into clinical protocol and cutting edge medicine
Patients come first;
Patients are always right;
All patients are equal
