My approach to treating patients

To provide the highest quality of comprehensive Orthopedic Surgical care available anywhere to individuals in Pasco and Pinellas county and beyond. My practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and total joint replacement surgery. Additionally, I treat disorders of the hip and knee with arthroscopic and minimally invasive techniques intended to speed recovery and enhance early function.

In many cases, surgery is the best treatment for debilitating arthritis. However, it is my goal to explain all the options for treating arthritis and the benefits of both operative and non-operative treatment. There is a lot of valuable patient information available today that can answer many questions a patient may have, or help to calm some concerns they may have. However, I believe that my staff and I may be your most valuable resource for any thoughts or concerns you have, which is why we are here.

It is my goal to take the time to not only understand your orthopaedic problem but to also understand your goals and desires. That foundation permits us to determine the best course of action and balance the pros and cons of the possible options.

I strive to stay on top of the latest advances in technology in order to continue to provide my patients with the very best treatment for their problem. I specialize in direct anterior total hip replacements and accelerated recovery protocols.
