It's a privilege a parent lets me take care of their most precious asset--their child. It's my duty to provide them the best of care.
My clinical interests are complex airway surgery, pediatric swallowing disorders and head and neck masses,along with general otolaryngology.
My research interest includes outcomes of airway surgery, laryngeal cleft management and outcomes of sleep disorders.
