A fellowship-trained orthopedic total joint surgeon, my practice focuses on hip and knee replacement, reconstruction of fractures around prosthetic hip and knee implants, and management of general orthopedic conditions and fractures. I have received advanced training in the less invasive direct anterior total hip replacement, a muscle-sparing technique that potentially allows for earlier recovery.
My approach to patient care is to first listen to the needs and goals of each patient and provide the finest individualized orthopedic care. I attempt to exhaust conservative modalities before proceeding with surgical interventions. I believe that having open discussions regarding disease processes and setting appropriate expectations is essential for obtaining optimal outcomes.
