About Me

I am a pediatric surgeon whose career has included leadership positions at several universities and teaching children’s hospitals including Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., and the Pediatric Surgery Research Laboratory at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. I have held leadership positions in several national and international surgery organizations as well as the American Board of Surgery. My research and other academic activities have led to more than 155 publications, over 235 presentations at national and international meetings, including several named lectureships, and four patents on specific intestinal growth factors.
