When I care for children in the hospital, I treat them as if they are my own. As a pediatric anesthesiologist, I practice evidence-based medicine. I believe this is the best way to offer clinical decisions to patients and their families.
At Cincinnati Children’s, I provide fetal and pediatric anesthesia care for a variety of needs, including liver transplantation. I also help manage the use of ultrasound during surgery.
I feel passionate about medical knowledge in general. The depth of knowledge involved with anesthesiology attracted me to the specialty. And during my medical school rotations, I found working with children is the most rewarding and privileged experience of all.
In my research, I develop studies that improve outcomes for the perioperative care of children. I am particularly interested in creating clinical studies for patients undergoing fetal surgery.
I am honored to participate in anesthesia care during fetal interventions around the globe. I assisted in the first fetoscopic closure of a spina bifida patient in Africa.
In my free time, I like to have fun with my three children. I enjoy watching their soccer and swimming competitions. I also love jogging.
