About me

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. I spent a substantial amount of time in San Diego for my undergraduate studies and medical school, but made time to surf and play rugby. I ventured to New England for my orthopedic training. This culminated with a short stint in the Midwest for my fellowship, where I cared for athletes within one of the most storied collegiate sports programs. I returned to Boston to teach and operate at my training institution for several years. There, I was fortunate to witness many notable sporting events and care for victims of a historic tragedy. These experiences helped shape who I am as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I was honored to be recognized as a 5280 Magazine Top Doctor in 2018.

About my practice

I am a sports medicine surgeon dedicated to treating my patients as individuals with a focus on arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder. I have a keen interest in shoulder arthroplasty and other complex open procedures of the knee and shoulder. Additionally, I enjoy tending to patients with fractures throughout the body. The patients I serve include weekend warriors all the way up to high-caliber athletes of all ages. I try to bond with my patients to gain a better understanding of what drives and ails you. I strive to improve your quality of life by decreasing pain and restoring function. My goal is to get you back to the activities you love.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with my fiancée and our Labrador Ruggles. I love being outdoors and delight in the things that Colorado has to offer such as hiking, fishing, biking and snowboarding. When cooped up inside I occupy myself with carpentry, mechanics and crossword puzzles. I also enjoy sampling craft beers and traveling with friends and family.

The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
