I became an orthopaedic surgeon because...

Orthopedic surgery allows me to keep people active and to minimize pain from worn-out, arthritic joints.

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

The most rewarding part of my job is hearing patients tell me about their many adventures they were able to participate in because of their new pain free joint!

What do you like to do in your free time?

Spend time with family, jogging, fishing, golf.

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

Volunteering my orthopedic skills though a local program in Wake County, called project access.
