I enjoy practicing medicine at the University of Minnesota, where we have every resource in place to ensure the best possible outcome for each patient. As a general and bariatric surgeon, I believe in taking a very thoughtful approach with each patient, sometimes leading to surgery but many times not. I am very involved in clinical and basic science research as well, as only through this process of discovery can we develop better treatments for the surgical disease we see on a daily basis.
