About Me

My approach to patient care is always focused on the unique goals of each patient. Whether a patient wants to return to a varsity sport or walk without pain, I work with each of them to establish goals and chart a treatment course.

I specialize in the treatment of sports injuries, including both operative and non-operative care. While I treat injuries throughout the body, my primary area of interest is the knee. I am interested in ligament injuries, such as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and dislocations of the kneecap. My role as both a clinician and researcher allows me to translate the results of my research in these areas directly to my patients.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we’re extremely fortunate to have access to top experts in every medical field and the best technology available. Our team approach to patient care allows every patient to benefit from these resources.
