About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon at Ohio State, I specialize in total joint replacement and reconstructive procedures of the hip and knee for problems caused by arthritis, trauma, developmental abnormalities and infection.

The goal of our comprehensive adult reconstructive surgery program is to deliver the very best care to our patients in a compassionate and timely fashion. I believe that the best care is delivered through a team approach. In addition to seeing me, my patients meet with nurses, physician's assistants and physical therapists.

I've had a lifelong interest not just in clinical practice, but also in education and research. Ohio State is among the largest and finest academic medical centers in the country. What I enjoy most about working at Ohio State is the opportunity to deliver optimum care to my patients.

When I have free time, I enjoy fly-fishing, restoring old muscle cars and golfing. I am a bicycling addict and try to ride my road bike whenever possible. My wife and I recently became empty nesters, as we've just sent our last college graduate off to a career in Chicago. However, my Old English Sheepdog and four cats continue to keep us company.

    I like his communication style. He seeks to learn about the every day me, not just the person he is examining in the treatment room. H e also takes the time to show how seemingly unrelated physical attributes are affecting my medical condition. He advocates my being more active in recovering from surgery while also encouraging a patience in the process
