More Information



My goal as a practicing Orthopaedic surgeon with subspecialty training in hand and upper extremity surgery is multifaceted. For one, I believe patients deserve the upmost devotion from a dedicated surgeon who is willing to help the patient by whatever means necessary to achieve a desired solution to their problem.

I also place a high value on education, and I have a responsibility to train the medical providers of tomorrow by offering training in my area of expertise. I believe this to be a foundational component of medical education. I also plan to remain focused on the development of my own education in order to continue to provide up to date and state of the art treatment options for my patients.

Finally, I believe it is highly important to contribute to our existing knowledge in the medical field. Research is an important component of orthopaedic surgery, and I will continue to work toward improving our understanding, skill, and technology in an effort to meet the demands of patient needs in the ever evolving field of medicine and surgery.

Ultimately, I plan to dedicate my career to the betterment of my patients as well as the field of orthopaedic surgery. I will utilize the knowledge and skill I have obtained in an attempt to improve the lives of my patients and give back to the field that has shaped my career.
