As an orthopaedic hip and knee joint replacement specialist, I strive to provide the highest quality of care to patients with Hip and Knee Arthritis. I am dedicated to applying the most current medical knowledge and surgical evidence to help inform and educate my patients as well as their families. I am proudly affiliated with Yale-New Haven Hospital, based primarily at the YNHH St. Raphael's Campus in New Haven, CT, and also providing surgical care at the YNHH Westerly Hospital Campus in Rhode Island. Together with the nurses, therapists, and staff at these facilities, I provide comprehensive care for total joint replacement patients, while remaining focused on the safety and outcomes of these procedures.
