Get to Know Me

I provide both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to take care of injured young athletes. I’ve focused my career on working with other pediatric sports medicine surgeons across the country to develop treatment methods best suited for the needs of growing and developing athletes, which are very different from those of adult athletes. 

Why I Treat Children

I love caring for children and teens. It's a joy to be around them.

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about the children I treat in my practice, just as I am about my own children and family. My medical interests include: pediatric sports medicine surgery  ACL ( the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee) tears  shoulder dislocations and instability hip impingement and labral tears arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle bone tumors pediatric orthopedic trauma (accidents affecting the bones and muscles)

How I Try to Make A Difference

I treat every patient in the way I would want myself or my child to be treated, and I try to develop health care solutions that improve quality, safety and value.
