WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I chose a career in medicine to combine my passion for science with my calling to care for people. There is little in life that brings me more joy than making people feel and function better. My interest in the complex anatomy of the upper extremity led me to pursue a career as a hand, wrist, elbow, and microvascular surgery specialist. I consider myself to be incredibly lucky to be a part of Duke Health, an institution that believes in being on the cutting edge of medical science while always making sure that individual patients get the absolute best care. Duke Health gives me the support necessary to teach trainees and pursue my research interests while staying true to my personal belief that the patient always comes first. I love North Carolina and spend my free time exploring it with my wife, Kristina, and daughter, Isabelle.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests parallel my daily work with patients. I study a variety of topics from wrist injuries to elbow injuries and from fractures in children to fractures in the elderly. I do both clinical research studies involving actual patients as well as basic science studies based in the lab. Through my research, I am able to give my patients the best possible care.
