  • Practicing at the Hinsdale Orhtopaedics Sports Performance Institute since 2002, I've specialized in arthroscopic repair and revisions for the shoulder, rotator cuff, labral and cartilage tears and knee ACL, ligament, meniscus and cartilage injuries. In addition to my practice, I continue to do arthroscopic orthpaedic research and haved developed several advanced techniques, instruments and implants to improve patient outcomes including rebuilding a broken glenoid, resurfacing a shoulder joint, revising previously failed ACL surgeries, and reconstructing ACL tears without injuring the growth plate. I've also established the Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine Teaching and Research Foundation (OTRF), a nonprofit foundation to fund unbiased orthopedic research, conduct educational programs and conferences for clinicians and the community, and provide educational opportunities for athletic trainers to obtain clinical and surgical experience to become physician extenders.
