“I am a firm believer in educating my patients and encouraging them to take an active role in their treatment.”
In 1986, I received my medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. My internship and residency were completed at Loyola University Medical Center. I also spent three years in the U.S. Army as chief of orthopaedic surgery and have received advanced training with a fellowship in sports medicine and shoulder reconstruction at the Cincinnati Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center. In addition, I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Arthroscopy Association of North America and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. I serve as team physician for several local high schools. I am board certified in orthopaedic surgery with a sub-certification in orthopaedic sports medicine.
I have special interest in sports medicine and arthroscopic knee and shoulder reconstruction. I have experience in meniscus and cartilage transplant.
Away from the clinic, I enjoy tennis, biking, swimming and running. I am married and have two children.
