He is board certified in orthopedic surgery and is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Coding and Reimbursement Committee.

“I usually like to get to know patients pretty well – find out what’s missing in their lives that they want to be able to do, and make sure that the surgery that we’re planning will let them be able to achieve those goals.”
