  • About Me:

    The approach I take to care is straightforward and simple: I start by being an incredible listener and then rely on my advanced training and expertise to help educate patients on all of their treatment options for a specific diagnosis. A more educated patient leads to better outcomes and an exceptional patient experience.

    I believe in this personalized care and deliver the same care I would expect for my own friends and family. As a specialized orthopedic surgeon I am blessed to meet many wonderful people, all with unique stories to share. Every day I feel humbled, and filled with sincere gratitude, to have the opportunity to meet and care for all of these individuals.
