About Me

I specialize in the expert care of injuries and issues with the musculoskeletal system affecting both children and adults. These include sports injuries and accidents as well as managing treatment of long term problems such as arthritis.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Boston College and graduated with high honors before embarking on a one year tour with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. This gave me the opportunity to work with a non-profit organization providing transitional housing to homeless families with children. Georgetown University School of Medicine and a vigorous five year orthopaedic surgery residency at Boston Medical Center followed. After graduating as chief resident in 2002, I became a recognized Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and have been practicing in Philadelphia since then.

My primary goals of treatment for the orthopaedic patient are the relief of pain and the restoration of function. I utilize both surgical and non-surgical techniques to achieve these goals, involving the patient in the decision making process.
