Hand and Upper Extremities

Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, I specialize in hand, upper extremity, and microvascular surgery. I am especially interested in treating all ailments of the wrist. A 20-year Air Force hand surgeon including two combat tours, I have extensive experience with upper extremity trauma and reconstruction. I publish articles and give lectures on a regular basis, and have served as team physician for the US Air Force Rugby team.
