Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

I specialize in caring for children. This is because surgery for children is very different from surgery for adults. Treatments will be planned with each child's growth and development in mind. I work with families to address each child's physical and emotional concerns. I am committed to taking all of the time necessary to answer every question. I will discuss your child's condition and help you learn about it. I will explain your options, even the ones that may not require surgery when appropriate. I operate in state of the art facilities equipped with the latest technology that allow me to perform advanced minimally invasive surgery. This approach speeds recovery, reduces pain, and minimizes scarring.Read more

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    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.
