Bio

Graduated from NY Medical College in 1989. I completed Orthopaedic Residency program at Tripler Army Medical Center. I completed the John A. Feagin, Jr. Sports Medicine Fellowship in 1997. After 4 years in San Antonio, I moved to the United States Military Academy. I recently retired in 2009 from active military service as a Colonel with 24 years of service after serving as the Director of the Feagin Sports Medicine Fellowship and Head Team Physician for West Point. I was an Assoc Professor at UCONN Health and served as a Team Physiciain for the UCONN Athletics 2009-16. I am now in practice in San AntIonio, TX with the San Antonio Orthopaedic Group specializing in the surgical management of complex shoulder, hip & knee injuries.
