About Me

I specialize in sports medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where I provide care for injuries and medical conditions that affect a patient’s ability to be active throughout his or her lifetime.

I played football at The Ohio State University from 1989 to 1993, and the physicians who cared for me when I was a student-athlete inspired me to pursue a career in medicine. As a former athlete, I enjoy helping patients of all ages recover from injuries and return to the activities they enjoy. I see patients for acute sports injuries, overuse sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.

I believe in working with patients to provide a comprehensive treatment plan for their individual health issues. I also enjoy helping people to remain active and healthy.

I love working in a place that provides a comprehensive, collaborative environment where everyone is dedicated to the personal healthcare of our patients.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and running.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
