I am a Board Cer­ti­fied Ortho­pe­dic Sur­geon at Duly Health and Care spe­cial­iz­ing in Sports Med­i­cine and joint replace­ment. As a for­mer Notre Dame base­ball play­er, I unique­ly under­stand the desire to return to form and func­tion. I help those I serve to flour­ish by approach­ing mus­cu­loskele­tal injuries with con­ser­v­a­tive care when­ev­er pos­si­ble and sur­gi­cal care when nec­es­sary. I have par­tic­u­lar clin­i­cal inter­est in sports injuries, frac­ture care, pri­ma­ry joint recon­struc­tion, and arthro­scop­ic treat­ment of the knee and shoulder.
