My passion is the science and clinical practice of bariatric surgery for both adolescents and adults. I received my medical training at the Ohio State University and completed general surgery residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital/Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. I then completed a fellowship in Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at the University of Nebraska. I have a PhD in Pathobiology and Molecular Medicine with a particular interest in the hormonal changes induced after bariatric surgery that are responsible not only for sustained weight loss but also improve multiple medical problems, including type 2 diabetes.
