Message to Patients:
As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I focus on individualizing treatment plans for athletes of all ages. By communicating clearly with my patients and simplifying complex medical decisions, together we can achieve excellent outcomes.
I enjoy taking care of athletes from all backgrounds, and welcome the challenge your injuries present. The surgical knowledge I have obtained through completion of a sports medicine fellowship and dual board-certification, in combination with your desire to return to play, will help us formulate the most effective plan, whether it be surgical or non-surgical in nature.
For those patients dealing with arthritis of the shoulder or knee, I offer reconstructive options, including computer assisted Reverse Total Shoulder & Total Shoulder Arthroplasties, Total Knee Arthroplasty, and the Oxford Partial Knee Replacement.
Some patients may be hesitant to consider a joint replacement. I also perform the Superior Capsule Reconstruction for rotator cuff deficient shoulders, Intraosseous Bioplasty & Subchondroplasty procedures for knee arthritis, and Platelet Rich Plasma Injections.
I have also had the pleasure to teach cadaver courses and give lectures to other orthopedic surgeons on shoulder arthroscopy and ACL surgery, as well as participating in nation-wide outcomes-tracking for surgical patients.
Though my specialties lie in Shoulder Surgery, Knee Surgery, and Elbow Surgery I also take care of fractures, and other general orthopedic issues. If your problem is outside the scope of my practice, I will happily refer you to one of my partners who would better service your orthopaedic problem.
