The gastrointestinal tract is an essential part of what makes us human; the ability to share a meal with family and friends, to grow to our full potential and to excrete waste products from the body, is very dependent on a functioning GI tract. I am excited at the opportunity to help children with these issues get better and by so doing function to their potential. The wonderful thing about being in Texas Children's Hospital is that I have the tools and excellent colleagues to help children in the communities around North Houston and its environs resolve their gastrointestinal problems and I look forward to this every day at work.

Clinical Interests:
