About Me

I came to the United States more than 20 years ago, and I’ve been practicing as an orthopaedic surgeon at NYU Langone since 1999. Living here has given me endless opportunities to apply my skills and gain new ones in my field.

I treat people who have experienced trauma and have broken bones and injured joints. It’s incredibly gratifying to help people who come to NYU Langone with disabling injuries, and to have the chance to “fix” their problems.

Seeing people recover from their injuries, get back on their feet—both figuratively and physically—and return to their pre-injury lifestyles are what our orthopaedics team finds most important and satisfying about the job.

In addition to offering surgical treatment for trauma, I treat people with foot and ankle conditions. I try to treat these conditions as soon as possible, because they can cause significant disability if not appropriately addressed.

To improve treatment outcomes, I am conducting research on atypical femur and stress fractures, which may be associated with medications used to manage osteoporosis. I’m also researching postoperative pain management that is provided immediately after fracture surgery.

I am honored to be on the national board of directors of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.
