My philosophy of medicine begins with my Faith. I believe that God is in control and I know that He is GOOD. I know that God wants the best for you and I feel privileged and blessed with the responsibility of being your doctor. I have also been blessed by being trained by some of the greatest orthopaedic surgeons in the country and therefore am equipped with knowledge and skills to help you get better! Second - I want every patient to be well informed. I will do my very best to accurately diagnose your problem and then educate you about this problem and your treatment options. I will never recommend any treatment that I would not recommend to a family member who had the same problem. This usually begins with conservative treatment options and progress from there as appropriate. If an operation becomes necessary I will thoroughly discuss risks, benefits, and alternative choices with you prior to surgery. In regards to surgery I believe that "Less is More". I believe in minimally invasive surgery whenever it is efficacious. My specialty training in shoulder arthroscopy has given me a unique perspective when it comes to this joint. I perform practically ALL shoulder reconstructive procedures arthroscopically - including repair of MASSIVE rotator cuff tears. Arthroscopic surgery (as opposed to open surgery) leads to significantly less pain and suffering for the patient and allows me to perform repair techniques which cannot be accomplished via traditional open surgery. In summary, I'd like to partner with you with one common goal - to improve your health and function!
