Radiology, Reconstructive Pelvic Medicine

On staff since February 1991

Children's Title: Division Chief, General Diagnosis

Research Center: Center for Developmental Therapeutics

"One of my mentors in medical school convinced me of the key role of imaging in pediatric diagnosis. Now, many years later and with many advances in the field, I remain amazed at our ability to look inside, to watch growth and development, and to contribute to clinical care, multidisciplinary education, and clinical and basic research."
