I'm so lucky to care for children with orthopedic conditions, it's an honor and my life's work! I specialize in scoliosis and spinal deformities, but also care for general pediatric orthopedic conditions like fractures, sports injuries and congenital conditions. One of the best things about treating kids is the chance to develop relationships with the patient and their family, as many of the problems we see can be treated with casting or bracing as opposed to surgery. We honestly try to provide every child the best care possible.
