Care Philosophy

As an orthopedic trauma surgeon, I am committed to helping patients recover when the unexpected accident or trauma occurs. Injuries are always discouraging but I enjoy working with my patients to restore hope and speed their recovery. I am always honored to be part of my patients’ and their families’ lives during such critical and stressful times. It is my goal to facilitate healing and restore function by providing expert care, the information necessary to guide effective rehabilitation, and by being available to answers patient's questions and concerns. 

I will not compromise when making decisions regarding quality of care issues and "As an orthopedic trauma surgeon, I am committed to helping patients when the unexpected occurs. Injuries are always discouraging but I’ll work with my patients to restore hope and speed recovery."
