About Me

Whether it’s serving as team physician for the local high-school football team, reducing and providing fracture care after a traumatic sports event, or using ultrasound to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries, I am honored to provide care for all patients. I enjoy developing relationships with patients and helping them successfully return to their active lifestyles.

Patients can expect a personalized experience when they come to see me. I pride myself on being down-to-earth and detail oriented, and I strive to get to know my patients well. I am dedicated to addressing all aspects of a patient’s orthopedic or sports medicine needs on their journey to recovery. I take the time to listen, educate patients about the diagnosis and develop comprehensive treatment options to get them back to the activities they love as quickly and safely as possible.

Each patient has a unique and inspiring story. Some desire to get back to their sport, while others aspire to be able to play with their grandchildren. I enjoy listening to their stories and developing a game plan to make their goals a reality.

During my fellowship training, I had the privilege to provide care to all levels of athletes ranging from the adolescent to the professional. I currently serve as a team physician for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Milwaukee Brewers High A affiliate) and the Wisconsin Herd (NBA G League Milwaukee Bucks affiliate).
