- Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.
About MeAs an orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in orthopedic trauma care with a special emphasis on geriatric care. I’m passionate about integrating cutting-edge technology into clinical care to significantly improve patient outcomes. I believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life no matter what stage of life they are in. I strive to be a catalyst of change through passion, authenticity and dynamic patient-physician relationships, ultimately leading to breakthroughs in orthopedic patient care.
At the age of 17, I sustained a traumatic knee injury and was confronted with news that I may not be able to walk in a few years without significant reconstructive surgery. Ohio State was one of the few centers in the country that could offer the care I needed. The outstanding treatment I received as a patient was a pivotal moment for me. It showed me what excellence meant to me as a patient, physician and researcher.
I was blessed with the opportunity to train at Ohio State for my residency, and I’m incredibly excited to be part of the multidisciplinary team that made it possible for me to recover and pursue my dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. Ohio State is a national leader in elderly orthopaedic care and aims to set the standard of care for our patients by exceling in orthopaedic research, education, clinical excellence and strategic innovations.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading, kayaking, swimming, hiking and relaxing with my family.
