Care Philosophy
My interest in sports led to me into orthopedics and sports medicine. Today, my expertise is focused on athletes who use their arms for throwing – baseball players as an example – and injuries to the shoulder, elbow and knee. My patients include professional athletes, middle-aged weekend warriors and even older non-athletes. We use everything we’ve learned working with pro athletes to treat people from all walks of life, so every patient gets the benefit of treatment from a world-class research and fellowship training center.
