About Me

As a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in hip and knee replacement and revisions. Patients know I take the time to understand their goals and tailor their care plan to maximize the chances of a good outcome. I enjoy helping people regain their mobility, independence and pursuit of activities that make their lives enjoyable after having long-term difficulties with joint problems.

I have had experiences both at academic medical institutions and in private practice, but I realized that I missed teaching and mentoring students. In addition, I feel a strong pull toward the community of orthopedics and can shift my goals toward advancing the field as opposed to purely seeing patients. During my time at Ohio State, I plan to take on more of a role in orthopedic surgery resident education, collaboration to drive prosthetic joint infection management and coordinating research efforts for the total joints surgery division of the Department of Orthopaedics.

Before coming to Ohio State, I made contributions to the field of medicine by implementing significant administrative changes at the local level and investigating a novel care pathway for total joint replacement that has the potential to significantly impact health care as a whole.

I’m passionate about working at Ohio State (my alma mater) because it has the resources and collaboration between departments to support the best management of complex and failed hip and knee replacements. On top of that, the team’s family mentality allows for invaluable communication and close collaboration in patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy cycling, cooking, walking our dogs, hiking and traveling.
  • Directed efforts at another hospital to optimize patient outcomes for joint replacement by creating and implementing a protocol to get patients from their preop visit to final follow-up
  • Published multiple publications across multiple journals covering total joints outcomes, resident education and a descriptive study regarding a novel clinical care pathway for total joints patients
