My specialty is the treatment of problems of the upper extremity. As a fellowship trained shoulder and elbow specialist, I provide comprehensive treatment in these areas including advanced arthroscopic surgery and joint replacement services.

Our group specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques in both arthritis and sports medicine, including joint replacement and arthroscopy of the upper and lower extremities. We provide a wide array of treatment techniques using both surgical and nonsurgical options.
