I am the son of a retired pediatrician. I grew up in New England and completed my undergraduate degree at Brandeis University. I received my medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine. After a year of internship at Naval Medical Center San Diego, I served on active duty as a United States Naval Flight Surgeon for four years. During my tour of duty, I deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom with a Marine Corps light-attack helicopter squadron. I subsequently separated from the military and completed my orthopedic surgery residency at Northwell Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York. I then had the privilege of completing sub-specialty fellowship training in adult hip and knee reconstruction at University of California San Diego Medical Center.
About my practice
As a fellowship-trained orthopedist, I focus my practice on reconstruction of the hip and knee in adult patients. I perform primary total hip and knee arthroplasty as well as complex primary and revision of failed hip and knee arthroplasty.
How I thrive
I generally try to stay active outside of work. I enjoy being outside and exploring my surroundings. I am an avid reader and have an interest in a diverse set of subjects including science fiction and military history.
