About Me

As a former collegiate wrestler who underwent four knee surgeries, I am passionate about helping athletes and active individuals ward off the effects of old injuries and combat the effects of time on the injured joint. I have special clinical and research interests in using orthobiologic treatments that restore health to injured tissue, with the goal of stopping the damaging joint process. My goal for each patient is to eliminate sore joints, so they can maximize their quality of life.
