About

Bio

As an experienced physician in sports medicine and joint reconstruction surgery, I take a highly personal approach to caring for my patients. I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to the needs of patients, communication, education, prevention of musculoskeletal injuries, presenting treatment options, establishing a relationship, and involving patients in the treatment plan. I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder, knee, and elbow injuries, degenerative disease problems of the shoulder, knee, and hip, and sports medicine. Most of my practice is dedicated to knee and shoulder arthroscopies, and minimally invasive total joint replacement surgery. In the Tort Orthopaedic Institute we believe in the team approach for the treatment of musculoskeletal problems, and in improving the patients quality of life. During an initial visit, patients can expect an initial evaluation by the orthopedic surgeon and/or one of our physiatrists. An explanation of the condition and treatment options will be discussed with the patient in detail. This institute is unique in that we provide a very personal approach and a high quality service. We are committed to patient satisfaction and wellbeing. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your best possible musculoskeletal health.
