    Philosophy of Care

    I am amazed by the anatomy and biomechanical function of the human foot and ankle. The important role of normal foot and ankle function in one's overall well-being deepens my desire to help people walk, run and bike pain-free.

    I consider it an honor to have a positive impact on my patients' health. I have had the pleasure of being trained by some of the best foot and ankle surgeons in the country. I travel around the world every year to learn and enhance my skills, and to provide my patients the most up-to-date treatment options.

    I believe in developing a tailored, positive and honest line of communication with my patients. I also believe each patient deserves the best and most advanced clinical care based on research.

    I value and enjoy spending time with my family. I am an avid road cyclist and participate in century rides each year.
