WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in the treatment of disorders of the hip and knee. Most commonly, I treat conditions involving arthritis or degeneration of the joints. Treatment can include non-operative measures, such as activity modification, bracing, or medications. In more severe or longstanding situations, patients may require surgery. I truly enjoy seeing patients recover and resume their previous activities following orthopaedic treatment. I also really value educating patients about what is causing pain and what options there are at their disposal. I find that patients often have so much to teach me. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three kids, particularly in the outdoors.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am interested in improving our understanding of the ways in which we treat hip and knee disorders, particularly hip and knee replacement. This includes improving the way we deliver treatments, whether by understanding better the surgical techniques, outcomes after surgery, or ways we implement practice guidelines. I also am interested in improving outcomes in hip and knee revisions or "re-do" operations in which something has gone wrong with the original surgery, whether fracture, infection, loosening, or another problem. I think that by doing research we can help answer outstanding questions and therefore improve the care we give to our patients. Research has great practical application for clinical practice.
