Department of Orthopaedics

Clinical Associate Professor

Specialty/Research Focus

Hip Arthroscopy; Pediatric Orthopaedics; Sports Medicine

Professional Summary:

As a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, my clinical expertise is the treatment of pediatric orthopaedic trauma and general pediatric orthopaedics. My aim is to ensure that all the children under my medical care are able to participate in a physically active lifestyle, because the benefits of a healthy musculoskeletal system translate into overall physical and emotional health. I am also clinically active in hip preservation through arthroscopy and reconstruction/osteotomy. I have a special interest in idiopathic and neuromuscular scoliosis as well. I perform surgery at the Women and Children’s Hospital, and I practice at the UBMD Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine clinics, on Harlem Rd. and in Orchard Park.

I have active research in a number of areas. In conjunction with residents interested in pediatric orthopaedics, I am studying incidence of benign bone lesions, treatment of open fractures, tarsal coalition, treatment of pediatric femur fractures and rod bending in scoliosis surgery. I am also part of a team developing a pediatric fracture database at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. We are collecting fracture data that will allow physicians to critically evaluate treatment protocols and ultimately improve the delivery of fracture care for children. Additionally, I am developing a scoliosis surgery pathway as a quality improvement project. The goal of all my research is to examine the care of patients in order to improve outcomes.

I train medical students and orthopaedics residents with an emphasis on collaborative thinking and discussion. I also welcome residents interested in pediatric orthopaedics to conduct research with me. Teaching, mentoring and conducting research with up-and-coming surgeons facilitates the development of new ideas and methods to improve medical care, not only to the children of Western New York, but to children throughout the world via our published research.
