Orthopaedics & Physical Performance


I am an Associate Professor and the Founder/Co-Director of the Hip Preservation Program. As a fellowship-trained and board certified orthopaedic surgeon, I specialize in non-arthritic hip pain, and athletic injuries of the hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, and elbow. I perform open and arthroscopic surgical techniques, and also utilize modern biologic treatments (such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy) to optimize healing. I am the head team physician for Nazareth College Athletics, and a consultant for numerous college and professional athletic organizations, regionally and nationally.


I present and teach in the areas of hip preservation and hip arthroscopy, nationally and internationally. I have authored over 100 peer reviewed articles and book chapters concerning general orthopaedics, sports medicine, and hip preservation. I am actively involved in a number of research projects involving basic science, biomechanics, and hip preservation, with the goal of improving patient outcomes and satisfaction.
