About Me

I decided to specialize in orthopedic surgery when I was in my third year of medical school. I realized that surgery was incredibly exciting, and that orthopedic surgery would give me the opportunity to make people’s everyday lives better.

I perform stem cell surgery, transplanting patients’ own stem cells to an area in their hip, knee, or shoulder to regenerate healthy bone. This procedure prevents joint collapse and helps people avoid the need for joint replacement. I have performed more than 200 procedures of this kind, and NYU Langone is one of the few places where the surgery is available.

When people come to me for treatment, the first thing I do is explain the procedure and the expected results. I tell them what to expect in the three months after surgery, six months after surgery, and so on. I always encourage patients to ask me questions. That way, when the time comes to make a decision, they can confidently do so.

My research on bone repair and regeneration supports the surgeries I perform by advancing techniques and improving outcomes for patients. I have written more than 240 articles and have contributed to multiple textbooks.
