About Me

I am a hand and reconstructive surgeon who treats all conditions of the hand, wrist, and forearm and performs nerve and soft tissue reconstructive procedures all over the body. I have a particular interest in conditions causing poor blood flow to the hands and reconstruction of traumatic upper and lower extremity injuries. I trained as an engineer and try to be analytical and thorough in my approach, but I truly cherish most the personal engagement and interaction I have with my patients. During my medical training, I enjoyed learning about the complexities of the form and function of the hand, so I decided to focus my practice in this area. My father is a family medicine doctor who still practices, and I have always felt that being a doctor is one of the highest callings.
