What makes me unique as a doctor:

I try to be very thoughtful in my approach to treatment. My interest is in understanding why a problem is occurring and how that will guide treatment. Surgery is not always the best option.

What I enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine:

I enjoy watching my children play sports. I also enjoy playing squash and spending time with family and friends.

Why I became an orthopaedic surgeon:

Since I was eight years old, I knew without a doubt that I wanted to be an orthopaedic surgeon. As far back as I can remember, there were these mysterious individuals (orthopaedic doctors) who could fix me up and get me back on the court. I wanted to give to others what they gave to me.
