So: Who am I? I was born and raised in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, attended the United States Military Academy at West Point where I played Division I hockey, and then transferred to the University of Minnesota to pursue a medical career. I graduated from medical school at the University of MN in 1997, completed my orthopaedic surgery residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and then finished my training in hand and upper extremity surgery at the University of MN. I have been in practice at St. Croix Orthopaedics for over ten years, have a wonderful wife and three beautiful daughters, and have had the pleasure of caring for thousands of individuals in the St. Croix River Valley and beyond. I have also helped thousands to lose weight with The ProportionFit Diet.
