About

Bio

I did my med school and residency at UCSF and then did a one year fellowship in joint replacement at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Harvard system. I started practice 17 years ago. One thing that I really appreciate about being a specialist is that I am able to approach patient care with more attention to detail. My focus is not diluted by the need to perform a wide range of orthopaedic procedures. I offer state-of-the-art joint replacement surgery, but I endeavor to deliver results in a highly personal way. I care for people, not just their arthritic hips and knees. My work is my ministry. I love making music with my family and friends, staying fit and staying married to my wife Danielle. Above all, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.

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.

Possible labral tear: If you have had a n injury, labral problems are a possibility. Less likely would be arthritis, given your age. If it is in the way, an MRI with contrast will show the problem. A plain xray will rule out arthritis.

Only if it's severe: Some etiologies affect both legs and some affect just the surgical side. Causes of unilateral leg swelling are those that reduce the return of venous blood to the heart, in comparison to the arterial flow to the limb. In short, if flow to the limb exceeds the return from the limb, swelling of the shin and foot results. Blood clots, a concerning early cause, do not generally occur this late.

Depends: If the revision surgeries were for failed treatment of infection, sometimes amputation becomes necessary. Otherwise, most knee implant problems can be addressed with the various implant types available.
