I am a native of Rochester and was raised in Holley, NY. My passion is bringing the best orthopaedic care to rural settings. I was the first surgeon to perform a same day discharge hip replacement at a rural facility where I had a practice. I put a heavy emphasis on joint replacement and trauma. I have performed a significant amount of sports, hand, shoulder and elbow and some foot and ankle surgeries. I specialize in hip, knee, and shoulder replacements. I use an anterior approach to hip replacement that allows for less post-operative pain and faster recovery. I also perform robotic knee replacements.

At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website.
