“I tailor my approach in a way that makes the most sense for each unique child.”
I think pediatrics picked me. One of the neat things about kids is that they grow up. It’s great to be able to be their doctor through that journey. I’ve also gravitated towards taking care of cerebral palsy and limb deformity, conditions that will stay with children. It’s very rewarding to watch children overcome their limitations and optimize their physical abilities.
I enjoy motion analysis, the study of people and how they move and walk. We use motion analysis to understand abnormal walking in kids. I’m interested in treating limb deformity, and using an external fixator device to help correct the deformity and heal patients. There are incredible new technologies today where we use the computer to help us to sculpt bones.
I would like families to know that I will work with them as a team, and be with them every step of the way. I tailor my approach in a way that makes the most sense for each unique child. We have access to a whole team of specialists here; together we are able to provide the best care for children.
