Patient Care Setting

Orthopaedics & Physical Performance


I am a board certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon with surgery of the hand subspecialty certification. I specialize in hand, elbow, and peripheral nerve surgery. My interests spans a wide range of conditions, including trauma to the hand, wrist, and elbow, microsurgery, and reconstructive surgery for trauma and degenerative conditions. The ability to treat all aspects of upper extremity pathology, including fractures, tendon pathology, nerve injuries, arthritis, and major hand/wrist trauma is what drew me to become a subspecialist in hand surgery. My goal is to provide the highest level of personalized care for each patient we see.


Research is an important part of being an academic orthopaedic surgeon and helps us continually improve the field we have chosen to practice in. I am involved in a number of projects involved with patient reported outcomes in hand and upper extremity surgery, which helps all orthopaedic surgeons get a better sense of how our patients recover, and ways to improve upon patient care and treatment we currently provide.
