I was part of the core group that started the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation at Columbia University in 1997.  I have worked in liver disease since 1990 and was named the Clinical Director of the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation in 2000. In this position, I supervise the operations of a center transplanting more than 120 patients per year. Our staff is comprised of over 100 employees. Our center sees over 1500 patients per year with advanced liver disease.  In 2005 in addition to my responsibilities in CLDT I was appointed as the Clinical Director for pediatric transplantation and adult abdominal organ transplantation for Columbia University.   I hold both pediatric and adult board certifications and my clinical practice spans in and outpatient responsibilities.
