About Me

I primarily work with people who have experienced trauma, which can range from an ankle sprain or a broken hip to multiple fractures caused by a car accident. During my residency training, I was drawn to treating orthopedic trauma after seeing people recover from serious injuries with help from orthopedic surgeons. Those doctors were able to restore their patients’ physical capabilities and their quality of life.

I regularly collaborate with other physicians and healthcare professionals, including physical therapists and physiatrists who design rehabilitation programs for people after surgery. I also work with rheumatologists, who help patients prevent future fractures through additional therapy that includes infusions and medications.

In addition to treating patients, I also teach medical students and residents, and I am the director of the orthopedic surgery residency program at NYU School of Medicine. Medical education is extremely important to me—I always knew that I wanted to pursue an academic career, in addition to caring for patients.

I have been recognized by Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” series for the New York metro area. I am also a three-time recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award presented by orthopedic surgery residents at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital.
