About me

  I believe that hand surgery is the ultimate combination of art and medicine. I trained with the forefathers of hand surgery and quickly learned to respect the complexity and beauty of our hands. My early fascination with the hand's intricate anatomy led to an opportunity to run an anatomy laboratory while still in medical school. This opportunity then developed into leading an arthroscopy laboratory while I was an orthopaedic resident. These experiences, combined with the microsurgical training I received while in graduate school, have convinced me that I was destined to be a hand surgeon.   In addition to the required five-year orthopaedic surgical residency training, I also spent time learning microvascular technique, complex shoulder reconstruction and performing biomechanical research. My exceptional training has provided me innovative technical skill to provide high-quality care for our members.  

About my practice

  My practice focuses on conditions that affect the hands and upper extremities. My specialty training spectrum is wide and includes conditions ranging from congenital anomalies in newborns to advanced arthritic issues, and everything in between. I am proud to share the Kaiser Permanente philosophy in that optimum outcomes are the result of an integrated health care team. I work as part of your medical team to tailor your treatment and maximize your recovery. Your success is my number one goal.   I was in private practice for five years prior to joining Kaiser Permanente in 2014. During that time, I realized that patient care does not always occur in the exam room. Health care is evolving, and I am honored to be involved at the state level as the Georgia Orthopaedic Society delegate for the Medical Association of Georgia. This responsibility allows me to put patient advocacy into action.  

How I thrive

  Working with patients that have physical limitations has provided me a foundation of gratitude. I firmly believe that staying strong physically is integral in staying strong mentally. Physical therapy is oftentimes critical in restoring or maintaining strength in recovery. As a hippotherapy volunteer, I have worked with patients suffering from a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions and have witnessed miracles. Hippotherapy is a form of physical therapy on horseback. I am from Louisville, Ky., and horses have played an indispensable role in my life. I have a Seattle Slew granddaughter that I ride competitively in three day eventing. When she gets older, she too will help patients develop core strength and balance through hippotherapy. In the meantime, my two young poodles, Duke and Wyatt, are learning to be therapy dogs for pediatric patients with cancer.
