Care Philosophy

As a sports medicine specialist, my goal is to return athletes of all levels to their desired activity level. I have particular expertise in arthroscopic shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow reconstruction. I am a firm believer in trying non-operative treatment first, but if that fails, there are usually very successful minimally invasive surgical options for a patient. I utilize the latest and most technologically advanced arthroscopic techniques in performing my surgeries to allow patients to return back to their lives as quickly as possible, with the least amount of pain and scar tissue. Having performed more than 10,000 arthroscopic procedures, my patients typically have much less swelling and pain post-operatively. We also utilize the latest technologies in our office, including ultrasound, fully digital x-ray, and a paperless digital medical records system. You may learn more about me or my practice by visiting our website at: www.advancedortho.net.
