Philosophy of care

I try to present all treatment options to you and then together we can reach a mutual decision as to your best course of treatment.

Why I entered medicine

Prior to becoming an orthopedic surgeon I was a civil engineer. I became an orthopedic surgeon as it allowed me to combine my interests in medicine, engineering and helping my fellow man. What I really enjoy about orthopedics is that most of our patients get better, and many of our patients are cured.

Community involvement

I have served as the president of the Bucks County Medical Society, and also as a delegate to the Pennsylvania Medical Society.

Personal interests

I like to spend time with my family, work on automobiles and enjoy time outdoors.
