As a board certified orthopedic surgeon and board certified sports medicine specialist, I provide a friendly and thorough approach to patients with hip and knee problems. Mako robotic assisted surgery (knee replacement), arthroscopic surgery including ACL reconstruction, meniscus and cartilage repair and sports medicine are my areas of subspecialty expertise. Using minimally invasive surgical techniques as well as offering nonsurgical alternatives provides you with a wide range of treatment options.
I was raised in New Jersey and have enjoyed practicing in this area for over twenty years. Along with my board certified partners, we offer a full range of orthopedic care and accept most insurance plans.
