My approach to treating patients

Since joining the Columbia Orthopaedic Group in 2001, I have worked to develop a patient-centered approach to provide the highest quality of care, and I use a team approach to provide this. This team includes you as the patient, my assistants, and me. From obtaining an accurate history and physical to the supportive imaging techniques we use, we educate the patient about their injury and how to return to the playing field or regular activities as quickly as possible. We attempt to aggressively treat the patient in a conservative fashion, yet employ state of the art surgical techniques if necessary.

We specialize in the practice of sports medicine and arthroscopy with special interests in the arthroscopic surgical approach to the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, and the ankle.
