Practice Information

It's hard to enjoy life when your body hurts and simple physical tasks become a challenge, or when you can't play your favorite sport or participate in your usual activities. I want to help you get your body functioning as well as possible, so you can enjoy your life as much as possible.

I like talking with my patients and involving them fully in treatment planning. I will explain your diagnosis and present treatment options in terms you can understand, using visual aids and other resources to help you understand your condition. I want to answer all your questions and address all your concerns. I think it is important for you to know the risks and benefits of every treatment option and to feel confident in the choices you make about your care. When appropriate, I will first recommend trying physical therapy or other non-surgical treatment options.

My medical knowledge is current as is my familiarity with the latest and innovative orthopaedic technology. In addition to completing my internship and residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center, I also completed a fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at Oakland Bone and Joint Specialists under the guidance of Dr. Roger Mann who is recognized worldwide for his expertise and pioneering contributions to the field. I have a special interest in total ankle replacement surgery - a newly accepted treatment optin for patients with end-stage ankle arthritis.

I'm grateful to be practicing where I grew up, in North County San Diego. This is my home and where I have enjoyed an active lifestyle like so many other people who call this area home. It is a privilege to help my neighbors restore and maintain their quality of lives.
