As a thoracic surgeon at Ohio State, I strive to provide the best possible care to patients with lung cancer and esophageal cancer, as well as a wide range of other thoracic disorders. My highest priorities are my patients, their best interest and overall well-being. I feel honored to care for and support my patients and their families every step of the way.
My clinical interests include lung cancer, esophageal cancer, thymic tumors, airway surgery, and chest wall surgery. I also treat benign conditions, such as hyperhidrosis, myasthenia gravis, esophageal reflux and achalasia.
I utilize minimally invasive surgery, such as Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) and Robotic Surgery whenever possible. These innovative techniques aim to cause less surgical trauma and pain for the patient and yet offer the same benefits as traditional procedures.
Additionally, I do my very best to advance the field of medicine, through research and through education of fellows, residents, and medical students. My research involves clinical studies focusing on oncology and patient reported outcomes.
At the OSUCCC – James, I have the privilege to work with a dedicated team of expert physicians. We have a multidisciplinary and patient-centered approach to provide the most targeted treatments.
