Meet Joseph

I am a board certified colorectal surgeon who manages everything from hemorrhoids to diverticulitis and cancer. The focus of my practice is minimally invasive surgery. I utilize both laparoscopic and robotic techniques, and have developed a preference for robotics because patients have less pain after surgery. I was raised in New York and attended medical school in Washington DC, which gave me a real love for this region of the country.
