I became an orthopaedic surgeon because...
I enjoy people, love athletics and motion and have a talent for science.
I grew up in a family that has some physicians and was taught that orthopaedics is a field in medicine with many very effective treatments for restoring our patients’ quality of life.
“Motion is life, life is motion”
What is the most rewarding part of being an orthopaedic surgeon?
Helping a person restore their ability to do something they love to do or need to do.
All orthopaedic surgeons are extremely fortunate to be able to do this for our patients.
We are lucky that we have so many effective treatments and so many appreciate patients.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Alpine Ski with friends and family Hike/climb with our labradors
