About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I became an orthopedic surgeon to help individuals who have sustained a major injury or developed a debilitating condition. The feeling someone has when they have lost control over their health and well-being can be devastating. I work because I want to help patients learn about their conditions so they can make informed choices and consider all of their options. I assist them in exploring the benefits to make changes and help improve their lifestyle.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am an orthopedic surgeon, serving patients in York for over 40 years. I have been certified in Orthopedic Surgery since 1981, and current member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery. I am honored to have served on the board of the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics for 10 years, and was elected president of the board in the past. I now serve on the evaluation committee overseeing residency training programs in Orthopedic Surgery, and continue to be active in training Orthopedic residents at WellSpan.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am actively involved with the American Osteopathic Board of Orthopedic Surgeons evaluating Orthopedic Surgeons for certification. This involves visiting their hospitals, evaluating their medical records and observing surgeries. These are examples of my commitment to giving back to my profession. I am active in my local church and giving back to the community. I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy participating in the residency training program.
