Describe a typical day at work! On an office day, I come in at 9:00 AM. I take care of patients in a variety of ways (initial consultation, follow-up after surgery or non-surgical care, teaching students). I enjoy connecting with patients from a human standpoint more than ever… understanding what is going on in the patient's mind and heart, as well as the shoulder or knee. After patients' hours, and at times in between, I am running the practice and advising my staff. On a surgery day, I am in the operating room by 7:00 AM, and operate in two different rooms with my teams until around 3:00 PM. I work mostly in ambulatory surgical centers and can be very efficient as a result. I love teaching students in the operating room, as well.
