I specialize in the treatment of complex hip disorders with surgical hip preservation options for children, adolescents, and adults. My goal is to enhance hip function in active individuals and to prevent the early development of hip osteoarthritis.
As a former competitive figure skater, I was excited to combine my interests in sports, physiology, biomechanics, service, and medicine in a career in orthopedic surgery. Hip preservation surgery resonates with me because I believe in the philosophy of preserving ones body and optimizing the hip so that it can perform at its highest level for as long as possible.
The most rewarding aspect of my work is positively influencing my patients lives, whether directly through a surgical operation, or indirectly by guiding them through the medical decisions that they face. I am my patients strongest advocate, empowering them to understand their bodies in order to make informed decisions regarding medical care. Every patient is unique; I believe in a holistic approach where we work together as a team to create tailored treatments that enhance each patients quality of life.
