Personal Profile

I became a surgeon because I enjoy improving my patients' lives by removing their pain or fixing their surgical problems in the most comfortable way possible. My goal is to provide compassionate, respectful, quality and comfortable surgical care to each patient. Having been a surgical patient myself, I know it's stressful, and I always do my best to help my patients feel at ease and feel minimal pain. Sharing information with my patients about their surgical problems is important to me and I feel it leads to a better patient experience.

My interest areas include hernias, breast disease, small intestine and colon problems, gallbladder disease, cancer surgery, carpal tunnel release using an endoscopic approach, laser vein surgery and spider vein injections, among other things. I use minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy and robotic assisted surgeries when possible and appropriate.

I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Departments of Family Practice/Community Health and Surgery at the University of Minnesota, and past Chief of Surgery at Fairview Riverside Medical Center. I was also recognized as one of the "Best Doctors for Women in the Twin Cities" in the January 2014 issue of Minnesota Monthly.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking in beautiful places, scuba diving, downhill skiing, reading and attending the theater and movies.

I am a member of the following professional associations:
* American College of Surgeons (Fellow)
* American Society of Breast Surgeons
* Twin Cities Medical Society
* Hitchcock Surgical Society (President 2012)
* Minnesota Medical Association
