Patients Seen: All Ages

I have spent my career in pur­suit of excel­lence in the field of shoul­der, elbow and sports med­i­cine surgery by pio­neer­ing new approach­es, devel­op­ing advanced orthopaedic implants and sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures, sup­port­ed by cut­ting-edge mus­cu­loskele­tal research and patient-focused out­comes. I entered the field of Orthopaedic Surgery to make a dif­fer­ence to patients and it brings me great joy to help indi­vid­u­als of all ages regain their poten­tial phys­i­cal per­for­mance and qual­i­ty of life.
