I also provide coverage for the University of Miami Football and Baseball teams and I am the Medical Director & Team Physician for the Miami Marlins.
I was board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons and completed a sports medicine/shoulder fellowship and a clinical instructor sports medicine and research fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh.
