About

Bio

I have been in practice over 15 years. I specialize in adult reconstruction in Northeast Florida. I have advanced training in partial knee replacement as well as anterior hip replacement.  I have two offices, 1 in Clay county and 1 in Duval county.

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.
