About Me

I chose medicine because I wanted a career that allowed me to use science to care for people. I was quite familiar with athletic injuries, having been a competitive athlete for much of my life, so I decided to specialize in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery.

To get athletes back on the playing field, I perform minimally invasive procedures for knee, elbow, and shoulder injuries. I also perform reconstructive procedures for people who have torn ligaments, bone defects, and prearthritic conditions, as well as for those who have difficulty with activities or sports because of joint instability. I’m conservative in my treatment approach and only perform surgery when necessary.

I know how it feels to go through surgery, to sit on the sidelines because of an injury, and to be told you can’t play sports for months at a time. The only difference between my patients and me is that I wear a white coat and have a little more knowledge. Knowing what they are going through helps me come up with the best treatment options for my patients.

I believe patients should be involved in their treatment. I listen, discuss, and share my knowledge with them, so they can make informed decisions about their health.

When I’m not caring for patients, I conduct research that focuses on problems associated with the biceps tendon, as well as on cartilage regeneration and motion-sparing procedures. I am grateful to be recognized in the Super Doctors listing for New York and am a proud recipient of a Vitals’ Patients’ Choice Award. I have been on programs such as The Oprah Winfrey Show and Today, in addition to appearing on CNN and ESPN. It’s such an honor to be able to share my medical expertise in this way.
