Orthopaedics & Physical Performance


I am a board certified, and fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in total hip and knee replacement. I have been in independent practice since 2012 and have performed thousands of successful hip and knee replacement surgeries for patients. Some of these surgeries are revision/redo/second joint replacements sent to the University of Rochester for problems following the first surgery.

My goal is to keep patient’s mobile with the most reasonable nonoperative and operative treatment options. I work closely with a team of professions in the office and the operating room to bring world class total joint care to my patients using the most up to date knowledge. I stay current in advances in total joint replacement by taking part in a number of local and national committees and societies focused on total joint surgery. I look forward to the opportunity to treat you or your family member!


I believe in advancing the science of orthopaedics and joint replacement. I have been fortunate enough to take part in a number of studies during my training and at the University of Rochester. I have a particular interest in rehabilitation following total joint replacement (I am a physical therapist) including wearable technology and remote patient monitoring, orthopaedic training methods/simulation, and machine learning.
