Having a sports injury can be both frightening and disappointing for a young athlete. I strive to provide a warm and reassuring experience while helping children recover from their injury. My goal is to help each child return to their sport using both surgical and non-surgical treatments while also emphasizing injury prevention. I tailor each treatment plan according to the child's stage of development and am particularly proud when I able to help realize each childs athletic ambitions.
During my residency, I developed a passion for sports medicine involving the growing athlete. Pursuing this interest, I completed two additional years of fellowship training. My special areas of interest include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, shoulder instability, arthroscopic and open treatment of the growing knee, shoulder, elbow, and ankle.
I feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with young athletes. While sports injuries in the growing child present their own set of unique challenges, nothing is more rewarding than seeing the smiles on my patients' faces when they return to their sport.
