Care Philosophy

I strive to help my patients achieve greater mobility, independence, and relief from pain through treatment of arthritis and other painful conditions affecting the hip and knee joints. Hip and knee replacements can represent a miracle of modern medicine for many patients and I feel fortunate that I am able to provide these operations to my patients and to have performed these procedures over 3,000 times to this point in my practice.
