It is my attention to detail and intense care for all the needs of the patient, from the micropremie in the NICU to the multi-system teenage trauma in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, that defines my dedication to my patients and the practice of Pediatric Surgery. With a team of subspecialists, we can all work together to provide the optimal care for the children of North Dakota.
