Where I practice
I am an interventional radiologist – a doctor who specializes in image-guided minimally invasive surgery. This allows me to perform a wide range of procedures with lower risk than traditional surgery. I have been practicing for 25 years and have been very active in educating future physicians locally and nationally. I am the past president of Western Angiographic Society and the former national director of fellowship training programs. I enjoy working for Kaiser Permanente because of the collegial environment and focus on preventive health care. I love Colorado and enjoy many outdoor activities. I am also a professional musician and perform frequently. I was honored to be recognized as a 5280 Magazine Top Doctor in 2018.
About my practice
Minimally invasive medicine is the future of health care. I chose interventional radiology because of its cutting-edge technology and lower risk for the patient. We have a multidisciplinary practice focused on the best treatment plan for each patient. I believe the patient is the center of all care decisions. I practice state-of-the-art medicine and work closely with the patient's primary care provider and specialists to provide the best outcomes. I will always tell my patient what I think is in their best interest, given all of the available facts. I have extensive experience in interventional oncology; complex vascular conditions; and women's health issues such as uterine fibroids, pelvic congestion syndrome and fallopian tube recanalization. I also perform a new procedure for men called prostate embolization.
How I thrive
I am very focused on mental and physical well-being. I work out and meditate daily. I believe healthy eating is the foundation of good health and I have been a vegetarian for more than five years.
