My subspecialty is foot and ankle reconstruction. I use both open and minimally invasive surgical techniques such as arthroscopy to help athletes and other active people recover from orthopedic injuries and conditions. These conditions include bunions, hammertoes, arthritis of the foot and ankle, ankle sprains, Achilles tendinitis and ruptures, ankle replacement, and the correction of complex lower extremity deformity, among others.

I was drawn to medicine at age 18, when I became an emergency medical technician. I chose a career in orthopedic surgery after my rotation as a third-year medical student at Georgetown University. I realized at that point how enjoyable it is to work with motivated and active patients of all ages who have a goal of returning to or maintaining an active lifestyle.

I take a patient-centered and goal-oriented approach to treating orthopedic conditions. The process begins with a thorough assessment of not only the medical problem, but also the individual's goals and ambitions. Factoring these elements into patient care allows me to develop an individualized approach that helps to relieve pain and let patients pursue their specific athletic goals and hobbies.

Since residency, this approach has also guided my research, which has examined a range of topics, including the safe return to driving after lower extremity orthopedic surgery and minimally invasive surgery of the foot and ankle, among other topics.

I live in Charlotte with my wife and two young daughters. As a family, we enjoy spending time in the outdoors, golfing, grilling and exercising.
