About

Bio

I have spent almost my entire career at Harvard Medical School, practicing at either Massachusetts General Hospital and/or Brigham and Women's Hospital. I specialize in five areas, which I entered because patients were getting minimal relief are: 1. Increased function with age 2. Non-surgical musculoskeletal injury restoration or recovery 3. Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention 4. Fitness 5. Gait Analysis Specifics can be found at www.seizehealth.com. I am one of the few physicians trained in non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal disease. I am a Functional Movement and Fitness Physician. I deal with hip, knee, ankle, and shoulder pain. I also address gait (running and walking) and weight loss. The ultimate goal is avoid surgery, reduce the chances of injury, and increase fitness. I am a Harvard trained internist and cardiologist with 16 additional years in Harvard Orthopedics. I am also a Certified Personal Trainer and have a PhD in Exercise Physiology. My mother was a prominent trainer teaching 24 classes a week at age 86. Though she died in a car accident, I follow legacy. Among my accolades, I am the first winner of the Presidential Award in Musculoskeletal Disease (President Clinton) and named one of the most significant physicians/scientists in Brigham and Women's Hospital 100 year history. I have been on over 80 National Institute of Health Committees including the Osteoarthritis Initiative overseeing NIH osteoarthritis sites (2002-2016)
