Special Interests: I’ve always been a person who gets satisfaction from solving problems. General surgery as a medical specialty fits well with that personality characteristic. You diagnose a patient’s problem and then you perform surgery to fix the issue. I enjoy performing laparascopic procedures of all kinds and the residency program in LaCrosse has established an outstanding reputation for training surgeons to serve in rural communities.
Personal: I grew up in southern Minnesota and enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds, including fishing and hunting. Morgan, my wife, and I have three children and our entire family enjoys the rural way of life and central Minnesota.
