Care Philosophy

I, along with the dedicated team I work with, have a shared goal of achieving excellence in the care of our patients. Our goal of providing compassionate, individualized care requires teamwork and attention to detail. I am very interested in the scientific and technical aspects of orthopedic surgery and am dedicated to providing state-of-the- art care. An example of this would be computer designed, patient-specific customized instruments for performing knee replacement surgery. This approach has helped me to have a rewarding career as an orthopedic surgeon and given me the opportunity to know a great many interesting people, both colleagues and patients.
