About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon, I work with complex problems such as infections and reconstructive challenges in musculoskeletal care. I enjoy the opportunity for multidisciplinary care that my specialty provides. It’s rewarding to help patients to preserve their mobility and independence in situations where it might not otherwise be possible.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center gives me unparalleled confidence that I can offer each patient the best solution to even the most complex problems. My confidence in our excellent teams and expertise here at Ohio State allows me to welcome each patient as a person with individual needs, knowing I can provide that patient with excellent care, supported by our extensive resources.

My career at Ohio State allows me to work with a wide variety of patients as well as wonderful caregivers and an extensive network of experts. I enjoy the spirit for providing excellent care that is here at Ohio State.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors either in my garden or hiking and biking with my family. I’m also interested in the arts, including both performance and creative arts.
