About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon, I specialize in sports medicine and hip preservation. I think our field is very special because we’re able to use a combination of conservative and surgical treatments to help a variety of individuals return to certain activities or achieve specific goals.

I believe that helping patients return to a desired level of activity can help improve their lives and overall health. When we personalize a patient’s goals and collaboratively craft successful treatment strategies, our team develops a strong personal connection with the patient. In accomplishing this, we help patients lead full and engaged lives.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because we have the unique opportunity to combine clinical practice, community outreach, academic research goals and teaching skills.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and inventing new adventures with them. We love being outdoors and enjoy being a part of our community.

    First time seeing this doctor but seemed very concerned for me.

    I have noting but good things to say about my care provider. Wonderful doc. He's easy to talk to and provides answers to my questions where I can understand. For the times I was having problems following him, he took the time to make sure I understood everything before I left his care.

    I am so grateful that he did not write me off because of my age and gave me the option of surgery.

    Felt rushed, like he was very busy

  • Reviewed on Sep 12, 2020

    he was very great but I feel like I didn't get anymore clarity or information about what my injuries are or could be. Nor did I feel like my injuries and I were actually being taken seriously.
