I am a board-eligible and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician specializing in joint replacements, meniscus and knee ligament injuries, rotator cuff repair, and shoulder dislocations and replacements. I work with each patient to accomplish their desired goals, whether it is returning to athletics or playing with grandchildren in the backyard. I treat my patients the same way I would treat a family member or a friend. That means spending as much time as it takes to make sure that the patient's needs are all met and the patient's questions are all answered. When not treating patients, I enjoy backpacking, fly fishing, golf and disc golf, flying airplanes, and spending time with my wife and dog.
