Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

Capitalizing on 25 years of experience within the field of orthopedics, I remain extremely cognizant of when surgery is necessary and when it is not, when therapy will produce the very same result with less risk and fewer complications and when only surgery will suffice. I am a thoughtful person and doctor, and believe in spending time to clearly and completely explain, discuss and counsel people on their treatment and care before, during and after surgery. As such, I am careful to adopt revisions to tried and tested surgical procedures upon thoughtful consideration of risks and rewards.Read more
