About Me

Biography

As a pediatrician, my greatest clinical interest is therapeutic endoscopy and taking care of children with pancreaticobiliary disorders, including children with diseases of the pancreas.

In 2010, I completed a formal advanced endoscopy fellowship with specific training in ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) at Duke University Medical Center, in Durham, NC. My additional interest is in mentoring pediatric gastroenterology fellows in standard and therapeutic endoscopy.

I serve as co-director of Endoscopy for the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition and I am director of Endoscopy for the Pancreas Care Center. I’m also associate professor of Pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
