Description of Clinical Expertise

My field of expertise is pediatric anesthesia for off-site locations such as radiology and endoscopy suites.

Description of Research Expertise

I am a staff anesthesiology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. My current investigation focus is the use of novel technologies to predict risk for respiratory complications in children undergoing general anesthesia. I am presently working with a private company to study the role of Exhale Nitric Oxide monitoring as a predictor for respiratory problems during pediatric surgery.
