Professional Statement

My specialty is total hip and total knee replacement. I view patient care as a team effort between the patient and the physician. After all, it is the patient's health at the center of the relationship. I try to provide patients with information regarding their medical problem, and all available treatment options to assist them in selecting the most appropriate treatment plan. By working together as a team, we can achieve the best outcomes for everyone.
