Clinical Interests
As the director of the Children's Hospital Colorado cerebral palsy and neuromuscular program, one of my main clinical interests is the orthopedic manifestations of cerebral palsy and the use of gait analysis to evaluate and guide treatment of neuromuscular disorders. I work to improve and maximize the function of these patients through surgical management of bone, joint, and muscle deformities. I also specialize in pediatric sports medicine including management of sports injuries, rotational abnormalities, patellar instability, and other common pediatric orthopedic conditions. I am working to integrate sports medicine treatment with gait lab evaluation to improve the results of our treatments and the long-term performance of our athletes. This interest also includes disabled athletes as I am very involved in teaching handicapped skiing and treat many of these sports injuries in our disabled athletes to keep them functioning at the highest level possible.

Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the best care for my patients by taking all aspects of their life into consideration of the treatment that I am providing with the overall goal of good functional results.

Personal Interests
I enjoy skiing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, ice hockey, baseball, and mostly spending time with my family.

Volunteer Activities
I am involved in the Children's Hospital Colorado ARCH (Adaptive Recreation for Childhood Health) program. I have also worked with avalanche rescue training programs in Colorado and Oregon.
