About

Bio

I am an experienced, board-certified, fellowship-trained hip and knee replacement surgeon. I specialize in minimally invasive hip knee replacement surgery, complex primary and revision hip knee surgery, and treatment of related complications.

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.
