As an orthopaedic sur­geon, I believe in the impor­tance of holis­tic treat­ment for all orthopaedic con­di­tions. My treat­ment plans con­sis­tent­ly incor­po­rate mul­ti­ple ther­a­pies so that the per­son as a whole will be treat­ed rather than just the injured limb. Dur­ing my fel­low­ship train­ing I was able to con­tribute as one of the team physi­cians for the Detroit Pis­tons (NBA) and the Detroit Shock (WNBA). Cur­rent­ly, I am the team physi­cian for the Joli­et Slam­mers pro base­ball team. These expe­ri­ences allow me to have a unique under­stand­ing of the needs of ath­letes and best prac­tices for treat­ing sports injuries.
