My Biography & Research


As a pediatric interventional radiologist, I use different radiology tools including X-ray, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to perform minimally invasive procedures on a wide spectrum of patients and disease processes. While I perform many different procedures, I specialize in treating patients with vascular malformations, tumors and those who have had transplants.

My passion for helping children and my interest in working with the most advanced technology pushed me to become an interventional radiologist.

I strive to treat every child as if they were my own. Our department shares this philosophy through its focus on patients and families. We work hard to provide comfort and compassion to every patient we serve. We ensure that families feel safe and at ease during every visit.

I want children to receive the best care possible. That’s why I research new technologies to expand options for treating vascular malformations. I’m also studying the effects of the antibiotic rapamycin on vascular malformations.

I am the division chief for Interventional Radiology, co-director of the Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) Center and the medical director of the Vascular Access Team.

When I’m not seeing patients and families or working on my research, I enjoy traveling with my family.
