Practice Overview

As a surgeon, I enjoy caring for patients, and am qualified to treat many kinds of orthopedic injuries and conditions. I chose orthopedics as a career because in treating various problems with muscles, ligaments and joints, I can help people return to the work, sports and hobbies they love. I completed a subspecialty training in Sports Medicine which included advanced training in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery and care of athletes of all levels. My goal is to work jointly with my patients to help them reach their highest level of function so they can return to living life to the fullest.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three daughters and participating in multiple sporting activities, especially swimming, tennis and sailing.
