Where I practice
I received my undergraduate degree from Colorado College where I played goalie for the varsity hockey team. I received my medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and I completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Chicago where I was honored with the AOA teaching award. I am a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and completed my sports medicine fellowship at the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine in Long Beach, California. I am currently the Medical Staff President of Good Samaritan Medical Center, a position that continues through 2018. I served on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Permanente Medical Group from 2012-2015.
About my practice
I enjoy the challenges that a career in sports medicine gives to me. I am well versed in the treatment of complex injuries of the shoulder and knee. My practice encompasses advanced arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee and shoulder joint replacement. I have continued to practice the most current advanced techniques in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery of the joints and extremities. I try to take into consideration the whole patient when deciding on a treatment course. I enjoy the interaction with my patients when jointly deciding what would be best for them. I take pride in practicing evidence-based medicine.
How I thrive
In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors and in the mountains with my family in all seasons. I enjoy my time volunteering/coaching in the hockey association where my kids play. My wife and I like to cook, and I particularly enjoy cooking Italian cuisine. My wife and I play music together and in a band when time permits. Our family has rescued three dogs to date and currently enjoys our time with our two dogs.
