Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello and welcome to my practice. It's important to feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this Web page will help you begin to get to know me.
My first experience with orthopedic surgery was as a patient following a childhood injury. Since that time, it has been my dream to become an orthopedic surgeon. I grew up in Southern California, and later headed to the East Coast for medical school before returning to California for my orthopedic surgery residency at UC San Francisco. I then received additional subspecialty training in orthopedic trauma in Texas, before moving back to San Diego where I’ve been practicing since 2011.
My practice focuses primarily on orthopedic trauma including broken bones, injured joints, torn ligaments, and torn tendons in adults and children. I understand it’s a stressful time for the entire family when someone is hurt. Our team here in San Diego wants to help you through this time and give you the best care we can.
I strive for balance in life with my family, work, and recreation. Some things I enjoy doing include eating, traveling, watching and playing sports—I’m an avid soccer fan.
