  • Specialty: Foot & Ankle Surgery
  • Language: English

I grew up in a family of physicians, so choosing to pursue a career in the field of medicine and caring for people came easily to me. As a fellowship-trained foot and ankle orthopedic surgeon, I treat patients with fractures and sprains, ankle pain, Achilles tendon problems, athletic injuries, and more. I also perform total ankle replacements as well as forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot reconstruction.

I approach each of my patients with empathy and provide them with the highest-quality treatments and surgical plans. This resonates with my patients, who often refer me to their family and friends after experiencing positive outcomes from my care.

At NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, my team and I offer specialized, personalized care from diagnosis to recovery. My goal is to help people return to their lives with maximum function and mobility.
