About Me

Care Philosophy

As a Knee Surgeon, I feel the whole knee should be evaluated and treated. That way, the patient has access to all forms of operative and nonoperative treatment.That is why I treat all aspects of knee surgry.By only treating kneees, I feel I can provide better care to my patients.
