I try to develop an excellent rapport with all my patients so that I can understand and deliver the best possible care for each person. I am known to ease tension from time to time with a little humor. In my spare time I enjoy my family, yoga, stand up paddle boarding, rugby, and tinkering with orthopaedic inventions.
Orthopedic surgery is a rapidly changing specialty. I have dedicated myself to lifelong learning in order to acquire the knowledge and expertise to continue to deliver high quality orthopaedic care. In 2010 I was re-certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and was certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery’s newly created subspecialty of Orthopedic Sports Medicine.
I am proud to have trained as an orthopaedic surgeon at the University of Washington, one of the foremost orthopaedic teaching programs. I am a member of the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons, the California Orthopedic Association, and a Qualified Medical Examiner for injured workers in the State of California.
