About

Philosophy of care

I think of medicine as a science and an art. There is no perfect answer for everyone — treatment needs to be based on your individual needs and goals. Whether or not a patient needs surgery, good medical care is a process to get a patient from injury or disease to treatment success and I like to remain involved in that complete process.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because I wanted to help people and be challenged intellectually. I chose orthopedics, and specifically sports medicine, due to my passion for being active and playing sports while growing up. Fitness and sports remain an important part of my own life today. I have never required surgery, but have had several broken bones, including an ankle fracture in medical school. Dealing with those injuries provided me perspective on recovery and the importance of therapy in conjunction with surgical treatment.

Community involvement

I’ve participated in races raising money for various charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, as well as community outreach projects during school and training in Philadelphia, such as Habitat For Humanity. I did public health outreach while in medical school.

Personal interests

My personal interests include football, baseball and hockey, as well as keeping fit by running, lifting weights and biking. I also enjoy food, especially grilling/smoking meat.
