About Me

I am a third-generation orthopedic surgeon from Pittsburgh, who joined Duke when Duke Orthopaedics of Raleigh was founded. I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and I completed my orthopaedic residency training at the University of Pittsburgh. While at the University of Pittsburgh, I trained with leaders in the fields of sports medicine and total joint replacement. I have treated professional and amateur athletes, including members of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Panthers, and Pittsburgh Ballet, as well as athletes from local colleges and high schools. I am an alumnus of Davidson College (1986), where I met my wife Cheryl, a Raleigh native. We have two high school-aged children who are involved in band, running, golf, and tennis. We live in North Raleigh. I am an avid golfer, tennis player, triathlete, and sports/fitness fan. The healthy lifestyle of the Carolinas is a great benefit to me because I enjoy treating athletes of all ages and skill levels.
