Engineering, Technology, and Medicine medicine

I have been a practicing Orthopedic Surgeon for almost 20 years. Having a background in engineering has been a tremendous benefit to me and has made me a better physician. Early in my practice, I began doing some consulting with various manufacturers. I have always approached every procedure with the foundation of my surgical training, but always looking at how can we do this more efficiently, predictably, and with less risk to the patient.

Early in my career, I designed some medical products for various companies. This collaborative effort led to further designs (2nd generation products). Ultimately, I started a (very) small company to make my own products.

I have also been blessed to work with other very talented surgeons and engineers and take care of some wonderful patients. Providing team coverage for athletes has been very rewarding as well.
