My approach to treating patients
Welcome to my website! I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. Your health and quality of orthopaedic care are my top priorities. I strongly believe the most successful patient care results from a two-way treatment process.
I am a specialist in surgery of the Shoulder and Elbow and practice in San Francisco. I have a research interest focused in shoulder replacements. In particular, I am part of a development team for the "Reverse" shoulder replacement. This device provides a solution to many patients with previously unsolvable shoulder problems involving arthritis and rotator cuff disease. I am also a principal investigator in a replacement device for young patients with arthritis.
My work is also heavily concentrated in treatment of athletes and active patients using minimally invasive techniques such as arthroscopy. As an athlete with an avid interest in skiing and biking, I want to see my patients return to their favorite activities! Arthroscopic tools and techniques are used in my practice to facilitate quick return to work and sport.
My partners and I are academic physicians, and our office delivers state of the art orthopaedic upper extremity care in a private practice setting. We educate and train two orthopaedic surgeons per year in Surgery of the Shoulder, Elbow, Hand, and Minimally Invasive Arthroscopy of the upper extremity.
Please feel free to contact us anytime with any questions, comments or concerns. We'd love to hear from you!
