My goal is to spend time with patients and help them understand their condition as well as possible treatment options.
While I perform over 425 Ultra-Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacements every year, I usually also discuss other modalities such as physical therapy and injections (both cortisone and viscosupplementation or "gel" shots).
Often, patients see me after they have exhausted these non-surgical options. Once the pain and stiffness have gotten to a point where quality of life is impacted, we will often discuss surgery.
In addition to technical expertise and experience, I feel that education is key to obtaining excellent outcomes. I try to spend as much time as needed to make sure patients understand the procedure itself, and also what to expect afterwards in terms of recovery and return to activity.
My staff and I strive to make the surgical process as efficient as possible, and do everything we can to ensure excellent outcomes for all our patients.
My time away from the hospital and office is usually spent with my family. In addition, I am a FAA licensed private pilot and enjoy aviation. I also try to stay healthy by playing competitive basketball on a regular basis, and enjoy most athletic activities.
