Care Philosophy

I want to individualize the care for each patient with respect and understanding. I want each patient to understand their problem and the options they have to make it better. I want each patient to grow in knowledge about their issues and have some fun doing it.

Specializing In

I specialize in replacement surgery of the hip and knee. I have a lot of experience in revisions of the hip and knee as well. These can be complex. I also do general orthopedics and trauma.

Interests & Activities

I am interested in Joint replacement of the hip and knee. I also do a lot of redo or revision hip and knee surgeries. These can be complex. In my free time I love to hike, ride my bike, and play music. I golf too. Golf, to me, is not a sport, it’s an obsession. I love spending time with my daughters and their families. I hope to see a lot of them during the winter, because coming from Minnesota where they are, we will all enjoy time without cold and snow. I enjoy exploring restaurants, entertainment venues, and travel.
