Orthopedic Surgeon - Shoulder


Every day, I have the chance to meet patients who are in pain and have problems with their shoulders. By focusing on only one joint, I can help patients understand their surgical and nonsurgical choices. Whether a patient has a broken shoulder, a dislocated shoulder, an arthritic shoulder or a torn rotator cuff, I enjoy the opportunity to work with them and determine what treatment best fits their needs.
