I graduated from Albion College in 1974 with a BA having majored in Biology. I attended Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit and graduated with my MD in 1978. I completed a 5 year residency in Orthopedic Surgery through Wayne State in 1983. I went into private practice in Mt.Clemens, Mi and the majority of my career has been spent in private practice. I enjoy helping people help themselves and finding a non-operative method whenever possible. Recently I have found myself "burned out" by the politics and economics of medical practice these days and quit active practice. I would still like the opportunity to interact with patients and try to help and educate.
