I grew up in Cape Girardeau, MO, before completing my education in Saint Louis and Columbia.  I then underwent my surgical training at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix Arizona where I learned that the needs of the patient come first; that effective and successful care treats people and not just diseases; and that my job is not to simply tell you what to do, but to give you information and options and find a plan that works for both of us.  At Mayo Clinic I was able to train with some of the foremost surgeons in the world.  I particularly enjoy robotic surgery of the kidney and prostate, minimally invasive surgery of kidney stones and BPH including holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), prosthetic surgery for male incontinence and erectile dysfunction, and female incontinence and robotic prolapse repair.

Outside of work I spend time with my wife and two dogs, Mizzou football and basketball, the Cardinals, and being outdoors as much as possible-backpacking, fishing, floating, camping
