About Me

When I was in college, studying biology, I realized that I wanted to spend my life working in a field where I’d have the opportunity to learn something new every day. In medicine, things are always changing, so it was the logical next step for me.

I decided to pursue the specialty of orthopedics because it allows me to help people recover from musculoskeletal injuries. I enjoy practicing in a field where almost every patient can get better and return to doing the things they love to do.

At the Sports Medicine Center at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center, I see people of all ages with shoulder and elbow issues. I’m particularly interested in treating people who have shoulder fractures, as well as frozen shoulder—a condition that causes stiffness, pain, and decreased range of motion when the shoulder ligaments become inflamed.
