Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

I have been a surgeon for over 33 year and have operated many thousands of patients. I love taking care of patients and want them to receive the very best possible care in a friendly and safe environment. Good outcomes are important and can only be achieved through meticulous surgical planning, exacting technical performance in the OR, anticipating and avoiding potential intraoperative or postoperative problems, engaging the patient in his or her medical care and directing the nursing and technicians who round out the surgical team. The time spent with a patient is precious and must not be wasted. I want my patients to be seen on time, feel my attention is focused on them, have their questions answered, are not rushed or hurried, and know what to expect with the treatment or surgery I recommend.Read more

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
