Biography

As a Professor of Orthopaedics, in the Department of Orthopaedics at the University of Rochester, I specialize in the care of sports-related injuries for athletes and physically active patients of all ages. I enjoy the opportunity to help athletes return to their previous level of activity following injury.

My expertise includes treatment of injuries to the knee, shoulder, elbow, and ankle. I have served as a team physician for all of the Rochester area professional teams and currently serve as Team Physician for the Rochester Amerks, the University of Rochester and Monroe Community College sports teams.

Research

I have authored nearly two dozen medical journal articles on such topics as ACL reconstruction techniques and clavicle and knee ligament injuries. I am certified as an orthopaedic surgeon by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and was among the first orthopaedic surgeons to obtain the ABOS Subspecialty Certification in Sports Medicine. I currently serve the ABOS in several roles including question writing and examining ABOS candidates.
