Patient Care Philosophy
I like to work with motivated patients and athletes of all ages who are engaged in developing or resuming an active lifestyle. At the Sports Medicine Center at Husky Stadium, I am part of a care team that believes and enacts a comprehensive approach to providing expert multidisciplinary care to the active patient. As a physician, I am thrilled to manage patients and enable them to return to their activity. I enjoy performing procedures, such as joint injections, platelet rich plasma treatments, and musculoskeletal ultrasound that both promote activity and enable my patients to resume their active lifestyles.
Travel, photography, watching and playing a variety of sports.
Sports cardiology; musculoskeletal ultrasound; autologous growth factor therapy (PRP, Tenex, autologous blood injection therapy).
Sports cardiology; emergency preparedness; mental health concerns of the athlete.
