About

Bio

I specialize in partial and full joint replacement surgery of the hip and knee joints. I routinely use soft tissue sparing surgical techniques as well as computer assisted surgical techniques. I am published in peer reviewed Orthopaedic journals. I am also involved in clinical research and in the design of Orthopaedic implants and instrumentation.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
