About

Bio

I have been in practice for 9 years. I am board certified in orthopedic surgery. I did a fellowship in total joint replacement (adult reconstruction) and hip preservation (including hip arthroscopy) at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. I strive to treat every patient as if they were a close family member. I never would want one of my patients to feel like a number. I try to help them wade through the difficult choices of today’s healthcare. Besides having extensive experience in total joints and hip arthroscopy, I also have been working in orthopedic trauma for many years. I perform fracture surgery on the upper and lower extremities and strive to keep my patients comfortable by helping them to know what to expect. In my free time, I spend time with my four kids. T

Specialties
