“As a specialist in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery, my goal is to help people of all ages stay healthy and active. Most conditions can be successfully treated without surgery. However, when surgery is indicated, many of the procedures I perform are done arthroscopically through small incisions. With these techniques, patients recover as quickly as possible.”
After attending high school in Ohio and being selected to the All-State football team, I graduated cum laude from Tufts University where I continued to play football. I subsequently obtained my medical degree with honors from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and completed my orthopaedic surgery residency at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago. I concluded my training at the University of Rochester with a sports medicine fellowship focused on the treatment of knee and shoulder conditions. In November 2007, I was in the first group of physicians in the country to earn the subspecialty certificate in orthopaedic sports medicine.
I am board certified in orthopaedic surgery and have special interests in arthroscopic surgery for ACL and meniscus tears in the knee, as well as all arthroscopic surgery for rotator cuff tears and labral in the shoulder. I also specialize in knee replacement surgery.
Currently, I am involved in teaching other orthopaedic surgeons advanced arthroscopic techniques at the Orthopaedic Learning Center in Chicago. I am the team physician for Whitefish Bay High School and the Lakeshore Chinooks Baseball Team. I am the head of sports medicine for Aurora Advanced Healthcare and the medical director for Aurora Sports Medicine Institute in Grafton. In 2009, I was the winner of the Business Journal of Milwaukee's "Forty under 40" award.
