Practice Philosophy: I have one of the most rewarding jobs in medicine. To be able to assist a motivated patient’s natural ability to restore function or reduce pain is truly a wonderful experience. When the normal regenerative or healing functions of the body are inadequate to restore musculoskeletal health, we have at our disposal fantastic surgical solutions that can bring a patient out of pain and into motion and strength. I am fortunate to be supported by great clinical and operative staff to accomplish the goals that the patient and I set to attain.
