About Me

When I was a medical student, one of my instructors was a well-regarded sports medicine orthopedic surgeon and team physician. I admired him and was inspired to follow in his footsteps.

At the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Health and NYU Langone Madison Avenue Orthopedics, I treat patients with injuries affecting the knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle—whether those injuries occurred on a sports field or walking down the subway stairs.

I’m becoming more involved in orthopedic interventional procedures for joint and tendon injuries, such as hyaluronic acid injections, platelet-rich plasma injections, and stem cell injections. These less-invasive procedures can often be done on an outpatient basis, so patients can recover more quickly and in the comfort of their own homes.

I believe physical therapy is crucial in a person’s recovery process. My patients often work with physical therapists and rehabilitation specialist at either the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Men’s Heath or at our Sports Medicine Center. We provide a team approach to care and aim to meet all of our patients’ needs.
