"The reason I became a colorectal surgeon was to help people in difficult situations and to provide treatment in a way that keeps the patient experience front and center. I’ve valued building my colorectal expertise through clinical research, which not only enables me to give the most current and exceptional medical care, but also to provide my patients with insight into frontline treatment options. I have had the fortune to practice colorectal surgery in both Sweden and the United States and strive to bring the best of my experience and knowledge to my work with patients."
