Why I became a doctor:

It's the only job in the world that there is never a compromise between what is right and wrong. There are no personal agendas. Life is simple, do what is best for the patient.

What I'm passionate about:

Advancing the science of joint replacement as a whole, and passing on the knowledge I've garnered in my experience to the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons.

What I enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine:

Spend time with my family, ski, play tennis, travel and read.
