Orthopedic Surgeon, Medical Director
A good education never stops.
“I knew when I was 15 years old that I wanted to become an orthopedic surgeon, and I worked hard to obtain the best education available to me. But education alone is only half of good medicine. Since I’ve experienced orthopedic surgery from a patient’s perspective, I know that the personal care and the extra time I spend with patients is just as important.”

Committed to bringing you the latest care.
“I’m committed to offering my patients the benefits of the latest techniques, such as the uni-compartmental knee replacement and arthroscopic assisted ACL reconstruction replacement. By participating in professional societies, I’m able to exchange information with fellow doctors and bring the benefits of the latest breakthroughs to my patients. Everything that makes your care more comfortable and more effective is worth the extra effort.”

Dedicated to quality patient care.
“Being a physician assistant allows me to follow every aspect of care for our patients. I am involved from the first office visit through surgery and then recovery. This means our patients get consistent and compassionate care. There is nothing more rewarding than to know that I have helped to make a difference in another person’s life.”
