I aim to provide thoughtful and individualized patient care. Whether you have a common sports injury or require advanced shoulder reconstruction, my objective is the same – to provide the highest quality care available. Every patient is unique, and I work to provide education that will enable you to choose the best possible treatment option, and then design and deliver a plan that meets your individual needs and goals to begin the process of healing and recovery. Life is too short, let’s get to work.
