Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon & Sports Medicine and Shoulder Specialist
Personal experience with a knee injury prompted my career interest in orthopedics. That early experience and years of medical training taught me that when healthcare decisions are based on knowledge, not on fear or confusion, outcomes are inevitably better. Patients empowered with information feel confidence in moving forward with treatment plans and enjoy a more satisfying, positive medical experience. By combining delivery of care with expertise, compassion and education, I create a foundation for an optimal medical experience, my mission for each patient.
