My practice focuses on the nonsurgical care of patients with hip and knee arthropathy as well as primary and complex hip and knee reconstruction including revision procedures for problematic hip and knee replacements. I employ modern techniques, approaches, and technology to provide up-to-date and evidence-based care that can facilitate functional rehabilitation and rapid recovery while optimizing clinical outcomes for my patients. Native to the Rochester area, I have a sense of dedication and loyalty to this community. In addition, I value the advancement of the orthopaedic profession through political advocacy on both state and national stages.ResearchDuring my training, I received the Louis A. Goldstein and Mildred M. Goldstein Orthopaedic Research Award, which helped me pursue my research focusing on complex revision hip arthroplasty and improving/optimizing patient outcomes after hip and knee arthroplasty. I am proud that my experience and training allow me the opportunity to teach future physicians the practice of orthopaedic surgery, and to facilitate the scientific endeavor of advancing the field of orthopaedics through academic research pursuits.CredentialsSpecialtiesEducation2013MD | SUNY State University of New York-Buffalo School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (USA)Post-doctoral Training & Residency08/01/2018 - 07/31/2019Fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery at Indiana University Medical Center07/01/2014 - 06/25/2018Residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at University of Rochester Medical Center06/25/2013 - 06/30/2014Internship in Orthopaedic Surgery at University of Rochester Medical CenterVIEW ALL expand_moreAwardsFall 2005-Spring 2008, Dean's list every semester2004, American Chemistry Society: Silver Test Tube Award for excellence in Chemistry2006, Phi Eta Sigma Honor Society Inductee2007, Golden Key Honor Society Inductee2007, Tri-Beta Biology Honor Society InducteeFall 2009-Spring 2011, Dean's list in years 1 and 2 of medical school2016, Louis A.
