Patient Care Philosophy

My surgical philosophy is based on patient-centered care. The decision to have an operation is never an easy one, and every patient’s circumstances are unique. Every operation involves a partnership of trust between the patient and doctor. My job as a surgeon is to discuss all available treatment options (both surgical and non- surgical), to give honest advice based on the best current evidence, and deliver expertise care using the best techniques available to ensure an excellent outcome.

Clinical Interests

Minimally invasive total hip and knee replacement; complex total joint revision; hip impingement.

Research Interests

Clinical outcome studies; diagnosis and management of periprosthetic infection.
