WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a sports medicine physician, my role in the Department of Duke Orthopaedics is to take care of patients who are injured or in pain that do not need surgery. I first became interested in sports medicine as an athlete in college. I noticed that several of my teammates and I had injuries and needed help but never needed surgery. I have always been fascinated by how our bodies work and heal. Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves. At Duke, we have great surgeons that could repair or replace almost anything. My goal is to help people get back to their activity and become healthy as soon as possible without using surgery. This can be done with ultrasound guided procedures such as injections of corticosteroids, platelet rich plasma or PRP and stem cells. Minimally invasive procedures can reduce pain and cost as well as get people back to their sports and activities faster.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My clinical and research interests are musculoskeletal ultrasound, regenerative medicine and non-operative orthopedics. I teach and perform procedures that help your body heal itself. These include PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections and non-scalpel tendon procedures. My goal is to make musculoskeletal injections as painless and helpful as possible. I am a recognized leader in educating other physicians in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound and other non-operative techniques. I have directed more than 14 musculoskeletal ultrasound courses and have given more than 54 lectures nationally and internationally about non-operative orthopedic medicine.
