My interest in orthopedic surgery began when I was an orthopedic patient. I spent a year of my life on crutches while recovering from multiple knee surgeries after a football injury. I believe that my experience as a patient helps me provide high quality health care with a passionate and dedicated service to all of my patients. I enjoy spending time with my patients, so that I may better serve them and what their needs may be.
I received my Medical Degree (MD) and Master’s of Public Health degree (MPH) from Yale University. I did my orthopaedic externship at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. I completed my orthopaedic internship and residency at Yale University. I performed my orthopaedic trauma and reconstruction fellowships at Parkland Hospital/UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX, computer navigation fellowship in Hannover, Germany, and my orthopaedic pelvic femoroacetabular (FAI) fellowship in Homburg, Germany.
My clinical interests and specialties include upper and lower extremity fractures, fracture nonunions/malunions, fracture and soft-tissue complications, pelvis/acetabular fractures, and anterior hip and shoulder replacements.
