Orthopedic Surgeon - Foot & Ankle


I'm an orthopedic surgeon specializing in all things foot and ankle. I am passionate about educating patients about their problems and treating them with or without surgery. I enjoy all areas of foot and ankle surgery from bunion correction to total ankle replacement; my particular passion is in post-traumatic reconstruction and neuromuscular deformity correction. I attended medical school at the University of Minnesota, completed a surgical internship at HCMC in Minneapolis, completed my orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Massachusetts, and did a year long foot and ankle fellowship at Washington University. I enjoy working with patients to develop a treatment plan taking into account their needs, desires and lifestyle. I look forward to meeting you.
