"I take time to educate my patients about the nature of their problems and how they can be treated."

I have a special expertise in orthopedic sports medicine, and have treated athletes at the professional, college, high school and amateur levels. I perform arthroscopic hip, knee, ankle, shoulder repairs and reconstructions, including rotator cuff and shoulder stability procedures, patellofemoral, knee ligament and meniscal transplant procedures.

My practice includes ACL repairs, all-inside reconstructions and augmentations. I perform several types of cartilage transplantation including Bio-Uni osteochondral allograft. I specialize in hip arthroscopy, treating labral problems and femoroacetabular impingement. In addition, I perform total shoulder replacements including a stemless design, anterior total hip replacements, and navigated total knee replacements.

A graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, I completed my residency at Grand Rapids Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program in Michigan. Board certified in orthopedic surgery and orthopedic sports medicine with expertise in arthroscopic reconstruction of the hip, knee and shoulder, I have practiced at the Aurora Wilkinson Medical Clinic since 1994. I have also served as Vice President of the Wisconsin Orthopaedic Society from 2014 to present.

I became interested in orthopedics from my own involvement in many sports, including college football. I have published articles about anterior and posterior cruciate ligament testing and surgeries.

In my free time, I enjoy sailing, paddle boarding, tennis, downhill skiing, fly fishing, and spending time with family.
