I chose a career in orthopedics because I am
passionate about helping my patients get back to doing the things they love to

place the utmost importance on patient education. I take the time to teach my
patients about their condition and treatment options so we can design the best
treatment plan together. My goal is to empower my patients with the knowledge
and tools they need to tackle their recovery with confidence.
