BiographyAfter obtaining my Medical Degree, I spent 9 years obtaining specializations that would allow me to provide the highest quality burn care to my patients - from the moment of injury, to discharge from the hospital, and then re-entry into the community. After a five year residency in General Surgery, I received additional training in burn surgery, surgical critical care, and plastic surgery. This has afforded me the unique privilege of treating patients with burns throughout their recovery. As part of the multidisciplinary team of burn care providers at the Sumner Redstone Burn Center and the Fraser Outpatient Burn Center at MGH, we can handle the most complex burn injuries.


The focus of my clinical research has been on the use of laser for the treatment of burn scars.  In addition my basic science research focuses on the creation of a full thickness skin graft from pig skin, to be seeded with a patients' own cells and used for the treatement of burns, trauma, and recosntruction.
