Special Focus: Sports Medicine, General Orthopedics, Joint Replacement

“I was fortunate to discover the field of orthopedics as a freshman in college, when I injured my knee skiing. I was headed toward engineering before that fateful encounter. I was attracted by the combination of scientific learning and the opportunity to have such a positive impact on a patient’s life.

“I have found my career as an orthopedic surgeon exceedingly gratifying. It is beyond fulfilling to restore a patient’s mobility, improve their function and relieve their pain. It is also a privilege to be entrusted with these opportunities. This field is truly a great profession.

“I specialize in sports injuries to the knee and shoulder as well as degenerative conditions of the knee, shoulder and hip. I also pride myself on being a well-rounded orthopedic surgeon with diverse and varied experience.

“My personal time is spent with my wife and three daughters. I enjoy skiing, mountain biking and flying.”
