  • While hand and upper limb surgery is my passion, I am fully committed to changing HOW expert orthopedic healthcare is delivered... NOW ! I founded the OrthoNOW network which is the first national chain of orthopedic urgent care centers in the country. We prefer physician licensees/owners and you can reach us via My experience is setting that up, and encountering multiple obstacles led me to write my book, Healthcare from the Trenches, an Amazon new release bestseller. We must tell our stories and collaborate to improve healthcare delivery.
