Professional Summary:

I am one of only two orthopaedic surgeons trained in trauma practicing in the greater Buffalo region. My expertise and experience allow me to treat people with multiple traumatic and complex pelvis and extremity injury. As director of orthopaedic trauma services at Erie County Medical Center (ECMC), my practice encompasses care of patients who have sustained acute, complex orthopaedic trauma and complications of musculoskeletal trauma. My goal is to return patients to full function from what are sometimes devastating injuries. In addition to trauma care, I care for general orthopaedics patients who have a wide variety of clinical problems, including those with complications from injury and patients in need of lower-extremity joint reconstruction. As a member of UBMD Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine since completing my orthopaedic trauma fellowship in 1995, I care for people from all walks of life. My goal and greatest satisfaction is bringing about a successful clinical result for my patients.

I was one of three designing surgeons of a hip fracture implant for a major orthopaedic implant company. I championed the implant’s worldwide release and developed its early instructional courses. My research now focuses primarily on clinical orthopaedic trauma problems, including pelvis fractures and compartment syndrome practice patterns. I am working on an ankle fracture study, a hip fracture multicenter study and a study evaluating impact of muscle mass on clinical outcomes in trauma. My goal in research is to improve outcomes by learning from surgical experiences, both locally and as part of larger collaborative studies.

Teaching is a significant part of my career. My interaction with trainees keeps me on my toes as a teacher and practitioner, and my commitment to teaching locally, nationally and internationally has been recognized with four teaching awards. My daily interactions with residents includes rounding, formal and informal teaching in hospital, emergency room and clinic settings and, perhaps most importantly, hands-on tutoring techniques of orthopaedic surgery in the operating room -- often seven days a week. I train young orthopaedic surgeons in the craft of operating, and I also mentor them so that they grasp the responsibility inherent in caring for people. I strive to produce capable, independent, ethical surgeons ready to launch successful careers.
