Diagnostic Testing

I have focused clinically on the diagnosis and management of gastroesophageal disorders and aim to determine the best management options for patients with these disorders.

I have developed and pioneered techniques in robotic surgery at NYP/Weill Cornell to improve patient outcomes and recovery allowing the majority of patients to go home the same day.

Patients are then provided with a variety of medical, endoscopic and surgical options that most fits their expectations and lifestyle. I perform a variety of robotic anti-reflux and achalasia procedures among others and well as Endoscopic interventions.
