I completed my Orthopaedic Surgery residency in Michigan. During that time I discovered how much I enjoy fixing fractures and chose to subspecialize in Orthopaedic Trauma. I completed my Orthopaedic Trauma fellowship at Detroit Receiving Hospital in Detroit, Michigan and joined the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Saint Louis University. I practiced primarily Orthopaedic Trauma at two Level I trauma hospitals. At Saint Louis University I was involved with teaching Orthopaedic Surgery residents and Orthopaedic Trauma fellows. We enjoyed our time in St. Louis and became avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fans, however, after growing up on the west coast and graduating from the University of Oregon, we had a desire to come back to the Pacific Northwest to be closer to family. And, of course, I have a passion for the Oregon Ducks in all sports as well.
Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I practiced for 9 years as an Orthopaedic Traumatologist. My practice consisted of taking care of the multiply injured trauma patient with complex intra-articular fractures including pelvis and acetabulum fractures. In this type of practice, I also took care of nonunions (fractures that did not heal), malunions (fractures that may have healed incorrectly), and infections associated with fractures. Since joining Kaiser Permanente as Chief of the Fracture Service, I continue to take care of similar types of injuries. My practice focuses on fracture care, especially geriatric hip fractures and complex intra-articular fractures. Nonunions, malunions, and infections associated with fractures are also a large part of my practice.
I enjoy spending time with my family especially with their involvement in sports. I try to exercise daily to keep my life in balance.
