As an orthopedic surgeon with sub-specialty training in hand and upper extremity surgery, I take a highly personal approach in caring for my patients. I believe you are entitled to the best quality medical care in the field of Orthopedics and strive to maintain state-of-the-art expertise in orthopedic care. I believe my patients should be active participants in their care and will work towards understanding your unique symptoms and goals and tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs. I seek to provide education about your current injury and treatment options, both non-surgical and surgical. Most importantly, my treatment philosophy is to care for all patients as if they were members of my own family so you can get back to doing the things you enjoy most.
