About MeAs a fellowship-trained orthopedic traumatologist, I have the knowledge and skillset to manage any and all fractures. Some of the most common conditions I treat include fractures of the ankle, tibia, femur, hip, pelvis, acetabular and clavicle as well as articular fractures. I believe in educating patients about their injuries while encouraging them to optimize their recovery through means such as physical therapy, family support and smoking cessation. I take great pride in my work and focus on the perfect execution of each surgery I perform.
I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the excellent communication among departments and the multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. Our dedicated faculty and staff ensure top quality care for all patients with conditions ranging from isolated orthopaedic injuries to more complex polytraumas.
I enjoy spending my free time with my spouse and three children. I make every effort to attend my children's sporting events and activities. I also enjoy experiencing new authentic restaurants and grilling outdoors.
