My gender: Male
Where I practice
I attended medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I completed my residency at Tufts University School of Medicine, as well as a Foot and Ankle Surgery fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center. Treating conditions of the foot/ankle takes a team approach, and I look forward to working together with you.
About my practice
As a board certified orthopaedic surgeon, my practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the foot and ankle. This includes both surgical and non-surgical care of foot and ankle fractures, forefoot disorders (bunion, hammer toes), tendon tears, arthritis and joint replacement, deformity correction, sports injuries, arthroscopy, neuromuscular imbalance, cartilage disorders, second opinions, and revision surgery. Diagnosing and treating conditions of the foot and ankle is one of the most challenging areas of Orthopedics. While some orthopedic conditions resolve quickly and are minimally inconvenient, unfortunately many foot/ankle conditions are painful, heal slowly, inconveniently, and have additional challenges along the way. During a visit, we will discuss the options available to treat your foot/ankle condition specifically, and I will help you understand each of them. We will also talk about the risks/benefits of each approach, and will make a thoughtful plan together. As your provider, my promise to you is that I will always give you my 100% effort and honest opinion, as I would want for my own family. In my experience, the most difficult conversations take place when things do not go as originally anticipated or planned. I pledge to take care of you, especially if this situation were to occur.
How I thrive
I thrive by staying active with my colleagues and contributing to both our local and national foot/ankle orthopedic organizations.
