Philosophy of Care

I believe that the best patient outcomes result from a patient-doctor relationship that is centered on trust and open communication. When we work together we can find a personalized treatment plan that fits your specific needs. I am also dedicated to continuing my education so that I am always up to date on the newest and most advanced technologies and treatment options to ensure your greatest success.

    I specialize in complex forefoot and rearfoot reconstruction procedures, foot and ankle trauma, and sports medicine as well as arthroscopic surgery, fracture care, wound care, bunion correction, and diabetic limb salvage.

    I enjoy traveling to new cities, countries, and continents — experiencing new cultures and the local cuisine. I stay active and love to paddle board, surf, snowboard— anything that allows me to enjoy the outdoors. Family is important to me and I’m constantly looking to do the things I enjoy alongside them. I also believe in giving back and actively take part in global medical service work.

Feet are our foundation – they provide us with balance, distribute weight and assist with ambulation of our bodies forward, backward and laterally. With so much resting on our feet – literally – it’s crucial to take good care of them for whole body health. This is especially important when we engage in athletic activities when we put more stress and strain on our bodies for longer periods of time.
