I feel fortunate to be in the position to help patients on a daily basis to regain their function and return to their lifestyle. I provide a caring and compassionate treatment plan which emphasizes exhausting conservative treatment measures prior to performing surgery.
I treat injuries and arthritis of the shoulder, hip and knee and my goal is a rapid recovery for each patient. I have training in sports medicine and offer minimally invasive treatments including arthroscopic surgery of these joints. I strive to stay on the forefront of medicine and also offer biologic treatments, including PRP and stem cells, to enhance healing when it is appropriate.
I have experience working with athletes of all levels and served as a team physician for the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball, Team USA Rugby, Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the United Soccer League, Robert Morris University and multiple high school football teams.
