About the Provider

I was born in Paris, raised in Maryland, and am the eldest of four children. My parents, who are Cameroonian immigrants, instilled in me the values of hard work, family, service, mentorship, and education. I attended The Johns Hopkins University, where I was elated to discover that complex sciences are the backbone of managing physical ailments.

Medical school was where I was first exposed to the field of surgery and its major and immediate impact on patients’ lives. I was attracted to the operating room and saw an opportunity to serve people and fulfill myself by honing my surgical skills.

Given the devastating effects of obesity, I feel privileged to provide high-quality and equitable care to all patients. It is gratifying to use minimally invasive surgical techniques and have excellent outcomes. Obesity is a chronic disease that permeates all facets of a person’s life. Bariatric surgery and lifelong doctor–patient relationships are potent tools for helping people improve their health.

Since my undergraduate studies, I have been active in mentorship programs to help guide and encourage younger generations from all walks of life. From working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America to serving as the medical student education chief resident during my training, I have been privileged to have opportunities to contribute to my community, just as my many mentors have given so much to me. I plan to continue using my skills to elevate and positively affect my patients and my community.
