Clinical Interest for Patients

My clinical interests include athletic injuries of the hip, knee and shoulder. I treat hip injuries and conditions including femoroacetabular impingement and labral tears, hip cartilage injuries, avascular necrosis, and hip tendon tears with a variety of techniques including hip arthroscopy and tendon repairs. Knee conditions including ACL, PCL, MCL and LCL ligament injuries, patellar dislocations, cartilage injuries, meniscal tears, and fractures are treated with reparative, restorative or reconstructive techniques using minimally invasive techniques and biological interventions when possible. Shoulder injuries such as labral tears and tendon tears are treated with reparative techniques, often arthroscopically. I have specialized training and interest in athletic injuries in children and adolescents.

Care Philosophy

My team and I are committed to providing high quality, patient-centered care incorporating our clinical and surgical skills with advanced medical technology, giving our patients the best outcomes possible and return them to an active lifestyle.
