Doctor talking:
I became an orthopedic surgeon because when I was younger I enjoyed sports. And when people were injured I thought it would be great to be able to take care of them and return them back to sports.

Being an orthopedic surgeon, I treat problems with the musculoskeletal system. I enjoy

Doctor with patient:
caring for patients because I can make a difference often in a short time. Being able to see results in the short time is very satisfying. I believe in conservative treatment. However, my practice includes surgery in many cases.

Doctor talking:
My most common surgeries are knee and hip replacements, taking care of fractures such as hip fractures, as well as miscellaneous surgery, such as rotator cuff repairs, carpal tunnel releases, and many more.

Philosophy of Care text appears on screen:
I feel being a physician that my job is to be there for my patients and not the other way around.

Doctor talking:
I treat people the same way I would treat a member of my family. It is my belief that the best medical care is that which is associated with the least risk that will alleviate the problem.

Doctor with patient:
Surgery is my last recommended option. However, when necessary as in cases of fractures or infections, I will perform it as soon as possible. Finally, I always welcome a second opinion for patients that want one.
