"I am also an avid outdoorsman and am passionate about skiing on and off-piste, mountain and road biking, wake boarding and wake surfing, golf, fishing and scuba diving. These types of activity give balance to my life. I have also been on the patient and family member side. Myself, i have torn both achilles tendons 12 years apart while backcountry skiing and underwent successful surgery and a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation. I understand, as a patient and surgeon the challenges involved. My mother has gone through neck, back and knee replacement surgeries and so I also can understand how family members feel when a loved one is going through the surgery and recovery process. Ultimately, my team and I will do everything we can to ensure a successful surgery and return to the active lifestyles we are passionate about with less pain.""
