    Personal Statement

    As a former collegiate football player and current recreational athlete I know what it is like to suddenly be unable to perform due to injury. Having had multiple surgeries I know the fear and anxiety that the young athlete faces in these times. The skilled surgeons who allowed me to return to the playing field continue to inspire me to do the same for my patients. I am committed to using state of the art tools to get athletes of all ages back to the activities they enjoy and to continue to allow them to reap the benefits of a healthy active lifestyle.
