My work is ded­i­cat­ed to the pre­ven­tion, diag­no­sis and treat­ment of dis­eases and injuries of the mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tem. As one of the for­mer team physi­cians for the Boston Celtics and Tufts Uni­ver­si­ty, as well as a for­mer stu­dent ath­let­ic train­er at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Notre Dame, I have a spe­cial inter­est in sports and activ­i­ty relat­ed injuries and con­di­tions. My edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ences enable me to uti­lize proven, state-of-the-art treat­ments and pro­ce­dures that can restore mobil­i­ty and help patients return to an active lifestyle. This includes ACL recon­struc­tion, hip arthroscopy with labral repair, rota­tor cuff repair, and shoul­der sta­bi­liza­tion surgery.
