About

Bio

I am a fellowship-trained Sports Medicine Orthopaedist with academic, military and private practice experience. I have been the team physician for many high school, college and professional teams. I currently practice in a small community and specialize in knee and shoulder injuries.

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.

A 27-year-old male asked:

Get X-ray ASAP: See your surgeon asap and get an x-ray to rule out a fracture or dislocation of replaced joint. Get on crutches until then. Ice to hip. Modify your activities so the replaced hip will last as long as possible. Given your young age you might need revision surgery in 15-20 years if you continue high impact activity and 25-30 years if you are careful and stick to low impact aerobic exercise.

Muscle or nerve: Could be spasm of the rhomboid muscles or irritation of the dorsal scapular nerve (c5-c6) or scapular bursitis.
