Care Philosophy

As a surgeon I enjoy caring for patients. I chose orthopedics because in treating various problems with muscles, ligaments and joints I can help people return to the work, sports and hobbies they love. My goal is to work jointly with my patients to help them reach their highest level of function so they can return to living life to the fullest.
