I became an orthopaedic surgeon because...

I wanted to combine my background in science and engineering with the art of healing to alleviate pain, restore function, and help patients return to productive and fulfilling lives.

What is the most rewarding part of being an orthopaedic surgeon?

By far it is the connection with my patients. Each patient has an incredibly interesting and rich story to tell and I am honored that they trust me enough to let me into their lives and to allow me to care for them.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Most of my free time is spent with my lovely family, my wife Amirra and our five children, Dounya, Jenna, Leena, Sophia, and Adam. We love to play together, travel together, learn together, and explore all life has to offer together.

In what volunteer activities or efforts do you engage that mean the most to you and those you serve?

The majority of my volunteer activity is dedicated to my children’s school and after school activities.
