I’m a pediatric orthopaedic surgery fellow who believes working with children is a privilege. My inspiration to practice this specialty comes from a local and worldwide need for medical treatment to restore functionality. I was drawn to this specialty for the variety in pediatric orthopaedic practice, the complexity of developmental growth, the resilience of the injured child and the life-long impact surgical intervention can provide.
My areas of research include scoliosis, elbow injuries and biomechanics. I work to better understand injury patterns, reduce complications associated with surgery and improve clinical outcomes.
