About

Bio

I'm a fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in shoulder knee as well as sports-related injuries. I use advanced open arthroscopic surgical techniques to restore damaged joints, ligaments, and bones. I enjoy restoring my patient's quality of life, returning athletes back to play.

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.
