My patients typically experience a multidisciplinary, team-based approach. A working diagnosis is established after a thorough history and clinical examination, supplemented by appropriate testing. Operative and nonoperative management is guided by individual need, and s patient specific and collaborative. My patients can anticipate a clear, unbiased discussion of risks versus benefits, both in the short and long term.
In my personal life, I enjoy exploring new genres of music and film, kayaking, traveling, playing soccer, basketball and speed chess.
