I'm a longtime Novant patient and would like to say that I've been truly pleased with the care that I've received in recent years across the entire organization. I found this office to be particularly welcoming and cheerful, and I was treated very well by everyone from start to finish. The facility is also beautiful... of secondary importance to me but I did notice and appreciate my surroundings. Sincere gratitude to everyone for their great work and support!

I am a fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement. Using minimally invasive techniques that allow for enhanced recovery, I conduct some total joint operations outpatient. My expertise is in robotic surgery, partial knee replacements and complex revision surgery for failed hip and knee replacements.

My clinical focus areas include a broad spectrum of orthopedic conditions, including all types of fractures and musculoskeletal pathologies. I have extensive research experience in orthopedics and have participated in more than 40 projects that have been presented or published in peer-reviewed journals or meetings. I am certified by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons and scored in the 96th percentile on the written orthopedic board exam. I am an active member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons as well as the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I live in Charlotte with my wife and three daughters. In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching basketball, fishing and traveling with my family.
