From the Doctor:

After completing my general surgical residency at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center, I completed concurrent fellowships in robotic surgery as well as advanced laparoscopy and bariatric surgery. Over the last twelve years, my clinical practice has evolved to concentrate on both sub‐specialties. One common denominator in these two sub‐specialties is that they involve the intestinal foregut. I have become a recognized expert in the surgical treatment of diseases of the gastroesophageal junction and the esophagus. My collaboration with thoracic surgeons at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s has resulted in the development of an inter‐disciplinary team that specializes in robotic approaches to neoplastic and non‐neoplastic disease processes of the thoracic esophagus and mediastinum.

My practice currently centers around bariatric surgery. I am an independently certified member of American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, and I perform my bariatric surgical procedures at the Mount Sinai St. Luke's, a Center of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery. To develop my practice, I crafted a personalized approach and program for patients that includes orientation sessions, nutritional counseling and support groups—many of which I moderate personally in both English and Spanish. In addition to my clinical research projects, I have pioneered new surgical techniques and applications for robotic surgery. I routinely collaborate with thoracic and urologic oncological surgeons to expand the use of minimally invasive robotic surgery, with and without the additional of new facilitating technologies. I continue to be involved in advances in minimally invasive surgery to expand current treatment practice and improve patient safety profiles for high risk procedures.
