I became an orthopaedic surgeon because...

I became an orthopaedic surgeon after my grandmother broke her hip. I was a medical student and saw first hand how a physician could keep this wonderful lady comfortable and mobile. Since then I have had an affinity towards hip and knee reconstruction.

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

The most rewarding part of being an orthopaedic surgeon is seeing my patients out in the community pursuing their passion. I run into my patients skiing, hiking, fishing and boating throughout the state of Maine. We share stories together about our friends and family. What a blessing!!!

What do you like to do in your free time?

I am a passionate fly fisherman and snow boarder. I send my time with my family on Sugarloaf Mountain in the winter time and the coast of Maine in the summer time. The off months I maybe fish with my sons in the Moosehead lake region.

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

I volunteer my time to Mercy Hospital fund raising efforts and local Falmouth charity events.
