    I am an orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine physician who enjoys taking care of athletes and active individuals of all ages. I specialize in orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine conditions of the shoulder, elbow and knee, in addition to cartilage injuries and the use of orthobiologics.  As an avid cyclist and runner, I am committed to helping my patients restore an active lifestyle through excellence in musculoskeletal care, continued participation in state-of-art orthopaedic research and dedication to sports medicine.
