About

Bio

I grew up in and around Chicago. I returned to Chicago after college at the University of Michigan to attend medical schoool. My residency training took me to New York City where I learned from some of the nations best orthopaedists. I was very fortunate to be able to pursue my passion for pediatric orthopaedics at the world famous Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego (currently #2 in US News World Report for pediatric orthopaedics). After six years away from the Midwest, I looked forward to returning "home." Thankfully, I received a phone call from my current Chairman, Dr. Randy Loder, who invitied me for an interview. I instantly knew that Riley Hospital for Children was the place for me. The entire institution exists to help the children of Indiana, and strives to achieve this goal every day. I have never worked with more dedicated people in my life, and consider myself lucky to be able to work with them.
