Board certified by the American Osteopathic Association, I specialize in orthopedic trauma and reconstructive surgery. Because I believe it's important to be honest and open with patients, I "keep it real" by using analogies and examples that help them feel comfortable, understand their treatment options and overcome their fears.
I care for my patients the same way I would want a physician to care for my family and am truly moved when patients are happy with their outcomes. I believe I am good at what I do and I love doing it. Most people just aren't this lucky!
As a trauma consultant and product designer for Stryker Orthopedics, I have been involved in the development of multiple trauma and fracture-care devices over the last several years. In addition, I've written numerous journal articles and book chapters on trauma and fracture care, and I have lectured on a variety of trauma topics across the country and throughout the world. From this perspective, I can safely say that minimally invasive techniques and devices are rapidly advancing.
