Having trained in both pediatric and adult interventional radiology, I offer patients minimally invasive therapies for vascular, oncologic, genitourinary, and hepatobiliary pathology. It is my goal to provide compassionate, patient-centered care from initial consultation through definitive treatment. 


Clinical Interests:  

I have particular interest in the treatment of vascular anomalies. I work with my surgical and medical colleagues in the vascular anomalies clinic to offer a multidisciplinary approach in treating the spectrum of these diseases, from sclerotherapy for lymphatic malformations to complex embolization of high-flow arteriovenous malformations. In addition to treating these developmentally abnormal vessels, I also employ similar techniques in the treatment of developmentally normal vessels affected by various disease states, including deep venous thrombosis and venous insufficiency. 

Research Interests: 

My research interests include the spectrum of venous thromboembolism (VTE) from deep venous thrombosis to pulmonary embolism. More recently through my work with the vascular anomalies clinic, I have developed a particular interest in ultrasonic aspiration technologies to aid in percutaneous debulking of diseased tissue.
