Summary

  • I am a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of knee and shoulder conditions. I am a native of Buffalo, NY and joined the UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in 2003 after completing an orthopaedic residency at the University at Buffalo and a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Academically, I have published numerous articles on orthopaedic surgery and have lectured and presented on the topics of knee and shoulder injuries and surgical techniques. I currently serve as the Director of the Western New York Cartilage Restoration Center, Associate Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics at the University at Buffalo and the Chief of Orthopaedics at the Millard Fillmore Surgery Center. My commitment to athletics and sports medicine is evident in my involvement with sports teams; serving since 2003 as the Head Team Physician for the UB Bulls. I strives to treat each patient with compassion and will work with my patients on an individual basis to provide innovative care for exceptional outcomes. I take pride in being able to make a difference in the lives of my patients.
