Approach and Philosophy
There are numerous websites where you can go to find medical information - some accurate, and some not so accurate. Instead of duplicating what is already out there, I want to let you know more about me and my practice, what I do, and how I do it.
I fell in love with orthopaedic surgery when I was 16 years old. I scrubbed in for my first ortho case and decided within the first 10 minutes that this was what I wanted to do professionally.
During my residency and fellowships, I trained with some of the finest clinicians and technically gifted surgeons in the country. Along the way, I have also had the privilege of working with incredibly talented and passionate athletes of all levels, from weekend warriors to high school athletes, all the way up to the professional ranks. My experiences as a team physician on the courts, fields, courses, tracks, and ringside have been invaluable in terms of helping shape my practice and my philosophy as a doctor.
I am thrilled and invigorated that I get to wake up every morning and do what I love. I am convinced that there are two tremendously important things I can offer you, my patient: one, the highest quality of medical care, and two, an honest and informed relationship and dialogue.
My goal as your physician and orthopaedic surgeon is to return you to your activities as safely and efficiently as possible. I look forward to working with you.
