His main clinical interests and expertise involve TIPS, treating varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency, balloon kyphoplasty, and uterine fibroid embolization. He is also experienced in women’s imaging and procedures, a rare feat given the demands of both subspecialties. He is also a favorite of the residents given his knack for teaching and lecturing.
