Although I treat many patients with similar orthopedic injuries, I believe that the best outcomes for patients result from individualized treatment plans. Not every injury is the same. And to be sure, every patient has his or her own goals. Whether your hope is to return to a high level of competitive sports or to be able to walk your dog without pain, forming the best treatment plan requires excellent communication and trust with your surgeon. I am committed to listening and working with you to find the best treatment approach for your injury and lifestyle.

My goal is to provide you the highest quality of care by offering the most advanced yet scientifically sound surgical treatments available. I am a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with dual-fellowship training in both Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and Foot and Ankle Surgery. I specialize in reconstructive procedures such as shoulder and ankle replacements as well as minimally-invasive arthroscopic techniques.

I believe in advancement of the field through scientific study and education. I hold a faculty appointment in the department of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. I am involved with clinical research which offers patients access to the newest treatments and which helps advance our knowledge moving forward. Through my affiliations with both University of California, San Francisco and Stanford, I work with and teach the next generation of orthopedic surgeons.

In my office, I work closely with my partners who are all board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons. Together, we cover a broad range of orthopedic specialties.
