About

Bio

I specializes in sportsmedicine, complex knee and shoulder reconstruction, hip arthroscopy, elbow arthroscopy, partial knee replacement and complex cartilage injuries of the knee. One of my core principles is to do all I can to make the correct diagnosis and provide patient tailored treatment. I have had my share of very serious orthopedic injuries therefore my perspective as an orthopedic doctor is unique. Because of my injuries and multiple surgeries I personally know what my patients are experiencing; both emotionally and physically. My treatment approach is generally conservative. I will offer non operative options whenever possible. I stay up to date on novel non operative treatments such as stem cell injections, amniotic tissue injections and platelet rich plasma. I am a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and of the Arthroscopic Association of North America. If you are interested I posted some patient testimonial videos on youtube.com.

Loose joints: Hyperlaxity of the patella can lead to Patellofemoral joint damage of the knee. This usually occurs after repetitive patella dislocations or subluxations. ACL insufficiency usually does not occur in people w hyperlaxity. Albeit they may be more prone to a ACL rupture. I hope this info helps.
