About

Biography

As an orthopaedic surgeon, I specialize in treating pediatric and adolescent patients with spinal deformities, such as scoliosis and kyphosis. I also have an interest in treating adolescent low-back pain and am currently investigating the role that nerve compression syndromes play in this clinical issue.

I became interested in orthopaedic surgery as a child. Growing up, I was generally healthy, but occasionally I would experience an athletic injury that required attention from an orthopaedic surgeon. These encounters inspired me to be the same type of surgeon that helped me heal and get back to participating in my previous activities.

My role as a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon is to help patients with bone and/or muscle troubles understand what is happening to their bodies as they grow and develop. I enjoy educating my patients and their families on the pros and cons of possible treatment options. It is important to me that families see me as a resource to help guide them to the decision that will work best for them. I hope to develop relationships with my patients and their families that earn their trust and confidence. Ultimately, I want them to be comfortable asking me questions when they do not understand issues surrounding their medical condition or treatment.

When I’m not working, I love exploring new restaurants and traveling. Also, I’m a huge fan of Marvel Universe movies.
