About

Bio

I am a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon- fellowship-trained in joint replacement surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder. I specialize in minimally invasive hip replacement with the direct anterior approach; NAVIO robotic-assisted total and partial knee replacement; and shoulder replacement surgeries.

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.
