Since joining UB’s Department of Orthopaedics in 1991, my passion has been caring for athletes. This passion continues today providing medical and orthopeadic care to the UB Bulls as their head team physician. Though I am now focused on the nonoperative care of competitive and recreational athletes, I also care for the orthopaedic injuries of adolescent, adult and elderly patients. My specific expertise is in shoulder and knee injuries. Currently, I see patients at Jericho Road Community Health Center, and the ECMC Orthopaedic Clinic. I also see patients and perform surgery at the Buffalo VA Medical Center (Buffalo VAMC). Here, I typically care for our injured veterans who selflessly served our country.
My philosophy in caring for patients is this: whether on the athletic field or battlefield, or in the arena of daily life, patients of every age should feel that they are being cared for by a physician that wants to get them back in the game of life, fully functional, as quickly as possible. I strive to deliver this kind of high quality, patient-focused medical care to every patient I see.
