Practice Priorities
Patients: "Practicing optimal patient care for all patients is of utmost importance in my practice."

Specialty: "Expanding the horizons of the specialty of Pediatric Otolaryngology as well as improving current practice is an ongoing objective."

Research Support:
Clinical Outcomes Research supported through intramural fund grant to study the PHIS database to determine national treatment patterns of airway hemangiomas as well as lymphatic malformations and detect significant treatment variations and outcomes in pediatric hospitals.

Vascular Anomaly Research: Molecular characterization of lymphatic malformations as well as lymphatic malformation endothelium. This is supported through intramural funding. Currently it is resulting in preliminary data for future grant applications.

Development of multi-institutional vascular anomaly research through pediatric otolaryngology and otolaryngology efforts. This should promote better interdisciplinary knowledge of vascular anomalies and their treatment. Current database development is underway and will be completed in the next few months.

Outcomes in Tongue Reduction Surgery: Working with colleagues in the Department of Orthodontics to determine the effects of tongue reduction surgery on maxillomandibular growth in a pig animal model.
