It has been a privilege to practice at Children’s Wisconsin for the past two decades. I enjoy treating children of all ages with head and neck problems, including congenital neck masses, pediatric ear disease, snoring and sleep disordered breathing, voice and airway disorders and nasal and sinus problems. Children’s Wisconsin is a wonderful place to work with a dedicated team of providers and nursing staff who are committed to providing your child with the best care. In addition to my clinical duties, I serve as the Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Residency Program Director at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I am also active in medical missions, training surgical residents in Africa through the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS). I look forward to meeting your family and participating in the care of your child.
