About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

In high school, I fractured my leg in three places. The surgeon who fixed me was very impressive and he seemed to really enjoy his work.

What I want my patients to know about me:

In June 2017 I began offering computer-assisted, minimally invasive total shoulder replacements for some select patients. In December 2016, I passed the board recertification exam for both Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Surgery with flying colors. I am certified through 2029.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I love to spend time with my wife and four boys. When I can, I like to run and swim. I obtained my pilot's license while in the U.S. Air Force and I'd like to get back into that soon.
