Philosophy of Care

From knee scopes to complex hip revisions, my years of experience uniquely prepare me to understand my patients' concerns. Counseling patients and their families on treatment options to ensure the best, least invasive treatment is my priority. My training at Mayo Clinic has put me at the forefront of innovative techniques, I focus on minimally invasive surgical options so you can return to normal activity as quickly as possible.
