General Orthopedics, Foot & Ankle

As a fellowship-trained surgeon in foot and ankle reconstruction, I perform a wide array of procedures including various fusion, realignment, and limb salvage surgeries. Even though I specialize in foot and ankle, I enjoy all aspects of orthopedics. I have taken care of multiple sports teams during my career, and thoroughly enjoy the extensive range of orthopedic problems athletes present. I am trained in a broad spectrum of general orthopedic procedures, including fracture fixation of the upper and lower extremity, knee arthroscopy and arthroscopic rotator cuff and labrum repairs, tendon/ligament repairs, carpal tunnel, and trigger finger release. Academically, I write test questions other orthopedic surgeons have to take to become board certified, as well as perform on-site clinical exams for board certification candidates. I do my best at all times to treat your problem like I would treat myself.
