About Me

As an orthopedic surgeon focused on the upper extremity, I can help you with acute or chronic conditions of the shoulder and elbow. I also work with patients in our emergency room who have orthopedic injuries.

I became a surgeon because I love working with people and being on the move. A desk job was never for me. I enjoy interacting with patients and our healthcare teams, performing nuanced physical exams, and helping patients through surgical solutions. It's a wonder how much you can help people with your hands, and I'm glad I can use my knowledge and abilities to help make a difference in people's lives.

Our team specializes in all types of procedures, from simple arthroscopic rotator cuff and labral repairs, to shoulder replacements and complex fractures, and also multiple-revision surgeries. We perform several hundred procedures in the upper extremity each year and are experienced with tried-and-true techniques as well as new and novel ones.

Honesty and transparency is important to me when treating each patient. If surgery is the best option for the patient, I will say so. But if an injection or physical therapy are reasonable options, I will make that clear as well. My goal is to guide each patient to the best chance of a great outcome.

Our team conducts basic science, translational and clinical research, answering the most pressing questions in shoulder and elbow surgery. Decreasing infections, optimizing reverse shoulder replacement outcomes, improving rotator cuff healing, and introducing new implant designs are all part of our efforts.

I'm also an associate member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Society (ASES) and active fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. In 2018, our team was awarded the Neer Award from the ASES which is the highest research award given from that society and are the only institution to receive this award in the Baltimore/DC area in the history of the ASES.
