Provider Expertise

Care Philosophy

20+ years of experience practicing Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Surgery. I try to treat all problems without surgery and will perform surgery only as the last resort. I treat my patients as I would want my family members treated. I respect my patients’ time and rarely make patients wait to see me. I frequently give national presentations, teach medical students, residents, and fellows and write research papers. Because of this, I remain up to date with current medical knowledge, technology, and surgical techniques. I truly care about returning you to back to your vocation/avocation as soon as possible.
