I am an orthopedic surgeon at the Joint Replacement Center at Memorial Healthcare System. I specialize in sports medicine, cartilage restoration procedures, arthroscopic surgery, joint replacement surgery of the shoulder, hip and knee, and fracture management.
I have always been amazed by the ability of the human body to recover from injury. This fascination along with a desire to help people get back to active, pain-free lifestyles inspired me to pursue a career in orthopedics.
I treat each of my patients with the utmost compassion and care. During our first meeting, I take my time to not only learn about your injury, but also get to know you. I attempt to treat my patients non-operatively when possible, and, if surgery is needed, I am trained in the latest surgical techniques.
I have always enjoyed working with athletes at all levels – from weekend warriors to professional athletes. Throughout my career I have had the privilege of providing care to sports teams including the Miami Hurricanes, Miami Marlins, California Golden Bears and San Francisco Deltas. I have also provided medical coverage at national and international sporting events, and enjoy working with local high schools.
In addition to providing patient care, I have authored several peer-reviewed publications and have won multiple research awards. I have also given presentations at orthopedic conferences across the United States, as well as in Japan and Mexico.
