About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I was inspired to choose not only a career in medicine but specifically orthopedic surgery by a couple of interactions I had with an orthopedic surgeon when I was a teenager. I love that as an orthopedic surgeon I can help a patient regain function through both surgical and non-surgical treatments

What I want my patients to know about me:

I view every patient relationship as a partnership. I try to educate my patients about their particular problem/condition/injury thereby allowing them to become actively involved in the decision making process for treatment

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.
