WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Most patients I see have sustained an acute musculoskeletal injury or are dealing with long-term orthopaedic issues. I see all types of sports-related injuries, focusing mostly on shoulders and knees. It’s important that I learn the patient’s goals and understand their expectation for recovering from the injury. This can vary greatly if the patient is a recreational athlete, a child on a sports team or a collegiate athlete. As a recreational athlete myself, I have dealt with injuries requiring orthopaedic surgery. I understand both the patient and provider side. My goal is to get patients back to enjoying their activities in a timely manner. There are many multi-disciplinary resources at the Duke Sports Science Institute to help accommodate this, including physical therapists that work closely with me in clinic, running and aquatic therapists, sports cardiologists and neurologists, surgeons specializing in all areas of orthopaedics, and athletic trainers. Duke Orthopaedics is focused on the absolute best patient care but is also involved in research and education. This allows us to be at the cutting-edge of technology and developing new ways of treating injury and disease.
