About Me

During medical school, I watched surgeons help patients who were experiencing painful and life-altering conditions, and I realized how immediate and positive the impact of orthopedic surgery could be. Most patients were feeling better within days of their procedure and reached full recovery within weeks or months. Twenty-six years ago I decided to specialize in orthopedic surgery and have never second-guessed that decision.

As an orthopedic surgeon at NYU Langone, I specialize in primary and revision total hip and knee replacement, as well as partial knee replacement, hip resurfacing surgery, hip fracture repair, and knee arthroscopy.

We first evaluate people’s conditions and consider nonsurgical options. If there’s a less invasive way to effectively treat my patients, I choose that route. But if surgery is the best treatment available at a given point in time, I do not hesitate to recommend it. For people who may have more complex conditions, I use some of the most advanced technology available to find a minimally invasive and innovative solution to their problem.

I am excited to bring my expertise to one of the top ranked orthopedic teams in the country, providing compassionate, minimally invasive care and advancing the field with the use of innovative technology. I am a member of The Hip Society, The Knee Society, and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, at whose 2007 meeting I was awarded the Lawrence D. Dorr Surgical Techniques and Technologies Award.

“My award-winning research looks at enhancing patients’ recovery from hip and knee surgeries.”

Research Summary

For the last 20 years my research has focused on important advances in hip and knee reconstructive surgery: surgical recovery enhancement and outcomes of hip and knee replacement surgery, including partial knee replacement and hip resurfacing.

I am proud to have served as site investigator, principal investigator, and steering committee member of several prominent randomized clinical trials. The most notable of these was the FOCUS trial—the Transfusion Trigger Trial for Functional Outcomes in Cardiovascular Patients Undergoing Surgical Hip Fracture Repair—the results of which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.  More recently, my research team was the first to demonstrate that virtual reality facilitates training in the performance of total hip replacement surgery.
