Biography

Professional Background

I am an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip and knee replacement and hip joint preservation surgery. I received my medical degree at Weill Cornell Medical College, where I graduated as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. My training in orthopedic surgery was completed at the Hospital for Special Surgery where I studied both joint replacement and joint preservation procedures. I received an additional one year of fellowship training in hip and knee replacement where I gained further experience in both complex revision (after joint replacement failure) and minimally invasive primary joint replacement. After my fellowship, I was awarded the prestigious European Fellowship in Hip Reconstruction from the ME Muller Foundation to study both hip preservation and joint replacement from European leaders in the field.

I have experience in all aspects of hip replacement surgery including both minimally invasive anterior and posterior approaches and complex revisions after failure. I performed both total knee replacement, partial knee replacement, and revision knee replacement after failure. Additionally, I have experience in the treatment of hip dysplasia and hip deformity.

Research

My background includes extensive experience in clinical and translational research in topics concerning both joint replacement and joint preservation surgery. I have spent a number of years working in the Mineralized Tissue Laboratory at the Hospital for Special Surgery where we investigated both fracture healing and osseointegration in small animal models. Additionally, I have worked on translation research investigating the cellular and molecular processes that occur during hip replacement failure due to adverse local tissue reaction (ALTR) secondary to metal corrosion. Additionally, I have performed research within clinical registries looking at outcomes of hip and knee replacement revision and outcomes after joint preservation surgery such as periacetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia. I have over 30 peer reviewed scientific publications in these topics and have had over 40 presentations at national or international meetings.
