About Me

My favorite part of being an orthopedic sports surgeon is working with a health care team to help my patients regain their function and quality of life. Whether it’s getting back to work, returning to sports, or walking their dog, I strive to ensure patients don’t have to give up what’s important to them.

Preservation is an important principle to all sports surgeons, whether that is joint preservation or preserving quality of life. I am fellowship-trained to perform cartilage preservation procedures, repairs for rotator cuffs and labrums, reconstruct ligaments, perform shoulder replacements and hip arthroscopies.

I rely on a combination of open communication and evidence-based medicine to provide the best possible care. I believe it is important to take the time to understand expectations, goals and emotions in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for my patients.
