Personal Statement

I dedicated my career to the study and treatment of patients liver diseases. I have led the division of transplantation for the past 9 years. During my term, the patient's and graft's survival have consistently improved. In addition, I have developed a "bloodless" technique to perform liver resections: I do not use blood when I remove liver masses. Also, I am a pioneer in performing robotic assisted liver resection, a procedure that can be accomplished through a series of 9 mm holes.
