Department of Orthopaedics
Clinical Associate Professor
After more than twenty five years an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in total shoulder replacement,rotator cuff repair, shoulder reconstruction, general orthopaedics and trauma, I am currently focusing on non-surgical orthopaedic care. As a consultant, I bring insight as a former surgeon offering personalized attention to diagnosis, decision making, treatment, and if need surgical referrals. I believe it is imperative that patients thoroughly understand their diagnosis, rationale of the recommended treatment plan and ensuing course of care.
I have been chief of orthopaedics at Erie County Medical Center for over fifteen years, and that is also where I see patients. In that role I am committed to the continued growth of a world-class orthopaedic department specializing in trauma, total join reconstruction, shoulder, foot and ankle, upper extremity, spine and sports orthopaedics.
As a clinical associate professor, I have taught and mentored over 100 residents and countless medical students and allied health professionals. I greatly enjoy teaching the physicians of tomorrow, and I will continue to be involved in our university education program as much as I can.
