My approach to orthopaedic care is centered around you, the patient, meaning I will take care to explain the risks and benefits of all treatment options and help you make the best decision for you. I lead an active lifestyle myself, and I understand the importance of physical well being as part of a healthy and happy life. Weather you are trying to get back to the playing field, back to work, or simply back to life, my goal is to get you there as quickly and painlessly as possible. I love my job - I get to meet new people every day in the office and help them overcome many orthopaedic injuries and conditions. I love the technical nature of surgical procedures and the challenges and subtleties that each individual case presents. Most of all, I love seeing you get better. The most rewarding thing about what I do is seeing someone come in on crutches or in a sling, and then a few months or even weeks later telling them they are ready to return to work, tennis, golf, or walking at a park. Much of the time, that involves conservative treatment consisting of some combination of medications, exercises, injections, and physical therapy, though surgery is needed to address certain cases. What every it takes to get you there, we will make those decisions together.
