WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Most of the patients I see come in with hip and knee arthritis. We start with X-rays and other evaluations, then work to treat the situation with something conservative all the way to surgical. It’s all tailored specifically for each patient, and it depends on what type of treatment they have had in the past, how debilitated they are and how quickly we need to get them back on their feet. My approach is conservative. We’ll try injections and medicines first. If they don’t work, then surgery is an option. Duke is a great choice for patients, because we take the time to evaluate each one. We don’t just look at an X-ray and say you need surgery right away. We sit and talk with the patient about their concerns. Growing up, I was a gymnast. I always wanted to do something in sports medicine, which led me into orthopedics. Seeing the patient happy is the favorite part of my job, seeing people back up on their feet and walking around the neighborhood.
