My specialties

  • Orthopedic Surgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Surgery of the Hand

Professional interests

  • Hand, wrist surgery
  • elbow surgery
  • Hand, wrist or elbow injuries
  • Upper extremity sports injuries
  • Hand, wrist, elbow arthritis

Patient education regarding condition and treatment options is extremely important in allowing us to make the best decision as a patient and physician team. I strive to treat patients as I would want one of my own family members to be treated, considering both non-surgical and surgical options.

I find orthopedic surgery, and especially hand surgery, to be extremely rewarding. I enjoy seeing my patients return to their activities with improved quality of life and with relief from pain.
