  • I am a fellowship trained board-certified sports medicine orthopedic surgeon. I am well-liked and a conscientious partner. My current practice is exclusively sports medicine: 35% shoulder, 30% knee, 30% hip, 5% elbow.

    I trained at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas (2007). I currently serve as director of medical services and the head team physician for the New Orleans Pelicans, New Orleans Saints (2007-2017), University of New Orleans, and 8 local high schools.

    I concentrate my active research interests in the areas of: biological augmentation to healing in sports medicine, shoulder biomechanics and the throwing athlete, the suprascapular nerve in the shoulder, cartilage healing and cellular migration during cartilage healing, and hip arthroscopy. I have frequently been asked to be a visiting professor or invited speaker for both national and international orthopedic sports medicine meetings.
