About

Bio

My specialty interests and expertise are treatment of shoulder, elbow and knee injuries. If surgery is needed arthroscopy is the answer. Virtually all of these injuries can be treated with the 'scope' reducing the incision size, pain and scarring. I love treating athletes and helping them return to sports in a strong, healthy manner. Being a skier and cyclist and former everything else, I certainly understand the importance of a quick return to the game. This is what we do.

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.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgery

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Sports Medicine
