Personal Statement

From the moment that I was exposed to pediatric orthopaedic surgery early in medical training, I realized my passion for helping to heal and improve the function of children. It is truly rewarding being able to play a role in returning a kid or young adult to the activities that they enjoy and in improving the quality of life for a child with a chronic orthopaedic condition. Pediatric orthopedic surgery is unique in that a successful outcome depends equally on the patient, the family and the physician and I appreciate the opportunity to be involved in this partnership. There is never a dull moment in the pediatric orthopaedic surgery clinic and the energy and enthusiasm of my patients keeps me excited to come to work every day.
