About Me

I am chief of Interventional Radiology at The University of Kansas Health System. I became involved in the profession because of my interest in medical imaging and the ability to perform complex surgical procedures using minimally invasive image-guided techniques. My passion is Y-90 radioembolization. This technique gives hope to many patients with metastatic or primary cancer of the liver and has seen many great outcomes over the years. I’ve done extensive research on Y-90 and travel the nation teaching other physicians how to best administer it.

I’m affiliated with the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America and the Greater Kansas City Radiological Society. I stay current with the trends by doing investigative research, attending training seminars and reading scientific journals.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 children, triathlons and adventure racing. I also enjoy jet skiing and boating at the lake.
