My fascination of the anatomy and complexity of the hepatobiliary tract inspired my direction into transplant and hepatobiliary surgery. I have been practicing for over a decade and joined the division of transplantation and hepatobiliary as a clinical assistant professor with a specialty in multiorgan transplant in 2021. I treat patients for liver cirrhosis, liver cyst, liver cancer, bile duct cancer and gallbladder cancer.
Prior to joining UF Health, I was a clinical fellow at Indiana University Health University Hospital. During my time as a fellow, I was a mentor and tutor at the IU School of Medicine, where I taught students and residents in the intensive care unit and operating room.
My training began at Niigata University School of Medicine in Japan, where I attended medical school and completed an externship at the M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center in the department of pediatric surgery and infectious disease, in addition to a clinical observer in the department of organ transplantation surgery at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York. I returned to Japan to complete my residency at Toranomon Hospital in Tokyo. After, I completed a surgical oncology fellowship and doctorate in surgical oncology at Niigata University Hospital and School of Medicine.
My goal as a physician is to provide the best care and outcome for my patients. One way I am able to accomplish this is by increasing communication between patients and faculty whether that be providing realistic treatment options or navigating the complexity of the health care system.
