About Me

I am an orthopedic surgeon at the Joint Replacement Center at Memorial Healthcare System. I specialize in sports medicine, arthroscopic ACL reconstruction, rotator cuff repair, shoulder stabilization and fracture care. I also have extensive experience in total joint replacement of the shoulder, hip and knee.

I was inspired to pursue a career in orthopedics after my personal experience being treated for a torn ACL and meniscus. I decided I wanted to help patients who were injured or in pain recover and regain functionality.

I treat every patient the way I would treat a family member. I promise to take the time to listen to your concerns and symptoms, and explain all of the treatment options so you can choose the one that works best for you.

Throughout my career, I have worked with numerous high school and college athletes, as well as professional football players in the NFL and the Canadian Football League.

I am a Miami native and love caring for the South Florida community. In addition to providing patient care, I also have the privilege of mentoring college and graduate students who will become the next generation of physicians.
