As a member of a medical family, I knew at a young age, a career in the musculoskeletal system was my calling. I attended St. John the Beloved, Salesianum, University of Delaware, and then Jefferson Medical College. In 2008 I left for Boston to begin my orthopaedic career at Tufts (New England) Medical Center. Earning my first championship ring as a team physician for Boston's Cathedral Catholic High School and being featured in Tuft's Alumni Medical Magazine was a thrill, but The Sabin Experience at the University of Alabama combined with the Division II conference championship at West Alabama allowed me to "feel" football and other sports in the South. Whether I was medically covering Rodeo, WWE, Minor League Baseball or some other event, both the athletes and the southern fans were impressive. I am glad to return home. The experience at Andrews Sports Medicine Institute was truly special but training at Harvard, Switzerland and France with some of the Masters in shoulder surgery was a great way to complete my 7 years of orthopaedic training. My dream to join my father and his partners at First State Orthopaedics has come true September 8, 2015. While being fellowship trained in both Sports Orthopaedics and Shoulder, I will be taking trauma and emergency room calls, performing general orthopedic surgery to include fracture care and joint replacement and also continuing my medical coverage for teams and athletic events.
