I strive to use the most modern surgical techniques to minimize my patients joint pain and restore their quality of life. The focus of my practice is on adult (ages 40 and above) hip and knee arthritis treatment. Since this patient population greatly values their physical quality of life and due to the varying degrees of arthritis I seek to educate these patients regarding options to improve their hip and knee pain. This can include nonsurgical options and often, as symptoms progress, surgical options with joint replacement surgery.
In 1997, I earned my medical degree, and completed my residency (2002), at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I also completed a fellowship in adult hip & knee reconstruction in 2003 at the University of Utah. I am board certified in orthopedic surgery.
I focus on the surgical and non-surgical management of adult hip & knee arthritis. Specifically, these procedures include: total and partial knee replacement, revision surgeries, hip replacement and hip resurfacing. My areas of interest include revision (re-do) of knee and hip replacement surgery.
Married with four children, outside of the clinic I enjoy being involved in my children's activities, skiing, golf, and anything related to University of Arizona athletics (I grew up in Tucson, Arizona).
