Growing up in a family of physicians has instilled within me that a career in medicine is a way of life, not just a job. The path to a medical career became even more focused through my interest in the biomechanics of the human body and in particular, joint function and movement. That intrigue led me to pursue advanced orthopedic training as part of my surgical residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation after obtaining my medical degree at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. Before establishing my own practice, I elected to pursue a fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopedic surgery at Rush Medical Center. A fellowship is the highest level of training an orthopedic surgeon can obtain, offering the opportunity to spend an additional year honing surgical skills and technique in a specific sub-specialty of orthopedics under the guidance of some of the country's top surgeons in the field. As a Board certified surgeon with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, my practice at OrthoIllinois specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the knee and hip, with a special interest in complex primary and revision total joint replacement, rapid recovery and perioperative pain management after joint replacement.
