I am a surgical oncologist with a subspeciality in hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB), gastric and esophageal surgery. My goal is to have the skill set, knowledge, experience and compassion to heal or comfort all the patients who I am given the honor and responsibility to serve.

Much of my free time is spent learning or improving robotic-assisted and other surgical techniques used to treat cancers of the upper GI tract, liver and pancreas and deliver the best possible patient care. I also stay up-to-date with HPB trends through my memberships in the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgeons and the Mecklenburg County Medical Society.

Outside of surgery, I have worked for decades on advancing therapies that promote faster, and more effective, recovery after surgery for cancer patients - everything from what you eat before surgery to pain control and therapy after surgery. All told, I have published nine articles in peer-reviewed journals and made multiple presentations across the country on my findings.

I was proud to serve my country as a physician in the United States Air Force and was honored with the Air Force Achievement Award in 1990. In 2009, I was named Physician of the Year by Novant Health. My peers recognize me each year with a Top Physician award sponsored by Charlotte Magazine, and I have been named to the Best Doctors of America list.

My wife and I have been married for more than 40 years. We made Charlotte our home in 1997. Together, we have two daughters and a grandson. I enjoy most sports, reading, working out, time with family and worship. I've participated on multiple medical missions to Haiti with faith-based groups, including Charlotte-based Bless Back Worldwide. I am also an outdoor enthusiast who likes to spend as much time on the water as possible.
