Meet the Staff


Staff

My practice is a highly specialized practice providing care to patients with degenerative or traumatic conditions of the hip and knee. The majority of this work involves total hip and knee replacement, a major surgical procedure that requires preparation, precision, and attention to detail to ensure the best results. I have several individuals on my staff that help me deliver this high quality care. All of them are professionals and are dedicated to improving the lives of our patients. Through research and experience, we continually fine tune our practice to give the highest quality care possible. I would like you to meet these individuals and see how they may be involved with your care.
