What makes me unique as a doctor:

I'm an experienced diagnostician and a careful and kind healer.

What I enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine:

I have a wonderful wife and two interesting and accomplished daughters that I love spending time with. I also enjoy learning about WWII era history, aviation history and science history.

Why I became an orthopaedic surgeon:

I have always been interested in math and science, so becoming a surgeon was a way to use those interests to improve the lives of others. I considered graduate school for chemistry during my undergraduate years, but ultimately made the decision to go into medicine in order to help others directly.
