Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include pediatric hand surgery. With two fellowships, one in hand surgery and one in pediatric upper extremity, I specialize in congenital hand differences, brachial plexus birth palsy, and the care of pediatric upper extremity fractures/injuries.

Care Philosophy
I work closely with a multidisciplinary team to provide personal treatment plans for every patient, with plans including surgical and non-surgical options. At Children's Hospital Colorado, we have a dedicated Hand Center and Brachial Plexus Clinic, which means your child will receive age-appropriate care in a kid-friendly environment. With special training in pediatric hand surgery, my team and I are particularly sensitive to the needs of the growing child with hand differences and injuries.

Personal Interests

Volunteer Activities
I'm a member of Health Volunteers Overseas, and have traveled to Lima, Peru and Managua, Nicaragua.
