He went to the Duke University Medical Center to complete his general surgery residency (2003-2010) with a two-year research fellowship at UCSF (2005-2007) studying mechanisms of pain signaling in pancreatitis. He completed two advanced surgical fellowships in minimally invasive/bariatric surgery at Duke University (2011) and hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) surgery at Indiana University (2012). Once joining the faculty at the IU School of Medicine in 2012, he has developed a surgical practicing focused on minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery with a focus in benign & malignant disease of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and biliary system, as well as benign foregut disease and abdominal wall hernia.
