I hope this website is helpful to you as an introduction to the world of orthopaedics and sports medicine, as a resource about your anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment options, and about me as a person and physician.
Although medicine has an abundance of high-tech resources such as MRI and the internet, accurate diagnosis and a patients' understanding of disease may still remain elusive. The doctor-patient relationship is central in the patient care process.
Using the latest minimally invasive technical procedures, some of which I've developed on my own, combined with the right biologics to allow early return to high-level sports and recreational activities is what I pride myself on.
There are challenges to delivering what is optimal to the patient in today's healthcare climate. Although not contracted with some insurances, we accept most as an in or out-of-network provider; our goal is to do what is in the best interest of the patient, as opposed to what the insurances will allow.
My staff and I will do all we can to not only provide quality care, but to treat you as people - people with jobs to return to, kids to pick up, sports to get on with, and mountains to climb. The strongest pain killer I know is doing something you love - we have the expertise to get you back out there, whether you are a professional athlete or weekend warrior.
