Throughout my career I have focused on providing exceptional care for all my patients. Taking care of patients is definitely the most rewarding component of medical practice. In particular being able to diagnose and surgically improve the condition of athletes and patients so they can return to their previous level of activity is the greatest reward a physician can receive. My areas of interest and clinical expertise have been centered on all aspects of knee surgery foot and ankle surgery and orthopedic sports medicine. We have worked on improving surgical techniques recovery from surgery and injury and as a result better outcomes from the various interventions. On a personal note I am one of the Duke team physicians and enjoy working with the athletes coaches and the rest of the sports medical team. One can learn a lot about life communication and collaboration in this type of environment. My wife and I have been married for 34 years and have four wonderful children which we tend to spend most of our free time with.
