Professional Summary:

I’m highly committed to excellent clinical care, and strive to provide the most advanced operative and non-operative treatment of orthopaedic sports medicine conditions, using scientifically proven methods, delivered in an empathetic and caring fashion. Every patient I care for is equally important, regardless of whether they’re a provider for their family, a spouse, a son or daughter, or a highly paid professional athlete. I enjoy teaching fellows, residents, medical students, and other learners, and their questions and curiosity help motivate me to continue the lifelong learning process. My research interests include prospective comparative studies to determine the best methods of orthopaedic care, systematic reviews to disclose findings hidden in the published literature, and anatomic/biomechanical studies that can be put to immediate use for better patient outcomes and decreased morbidity.
