Since becoming an orthopaedic foot/ankle surgeon in 2006 and joining NorthShore Orthopaedic Institute in 2016, I have been highly active in orthopaedic foot and ankle care, instruction, and research. Unique procedures that I perform include but certainly are not limited to ankle arthroscopy, ankle and/or hindfoot fusions, foot and/or ankle fracture management, and total ankle replacements. Many of these procedures utilize the most current advances in orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery. Central to NorthShore is the practice that patients should receive comprehensive and specialized orthopaedic treatments without sacrificing personalized attention. Historically, orthopaedic foot and ankle surgical procedures had required a 2 to 5 -day hospital stay. Currently, many orthopaedic foot and ankle surgical procedures can now be performed with minimal, if any, hospitalization. Several procedures can be done with minimally invasive techniques. Many patients can be effectively treated with minimally invasive techniques, thereby reducing patient discomfort. However, I am prepared to perform complex surgical reconstructive procedures if that is needed. I treat all of my patients as I would want to be treated. I completed my orthopaedic surgical residency training at State University of New York (SUNY) – Downstate University Medical Center. An orthopaedic foot and ankle surgical fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania followed this. I have authored and co-authored many textbook chapters and peer reviewed journal articles on orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery. I also present original clinical research at national meetings on a regular basis. I provide comprehensive and cutting-edge orthopaedic foot and ankle treatment options with the utmost compassion to patients in Lake and Cook County. To schedule an appointment with me or to learn more about my practice, please call me. I look forward to helping you.
