Biography

I approach every patient as an individual and look at every problem as important. My goals are not just to relieve pain, but also to maximize function through non-operative techniques as well as through surgical correction. I apply a high level of expectation to myself and treat everyone with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. Continually acquiring new knowledge and skills, I use all the latest techniques and equipment. Having a degree in Bioengineering gives me a unique appreciation of the structure and function of the human body. Additionally, my sub-specialty training and certification in arthroscopy and sports medicine is key to properly caring for injured and degenerative joints. Helping all my patients to achieve their goals in life gives me such satisfaction.

In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking and other outdoor sports, as well as spending time with my three beautiful daughters and my wife.
