Q: What led you to work in Orthopedics?
Answer: Orthopedics is all about restoring quality of life. The patients I work with are motivated to get better so they can get back to the activities they enjoy. It is my aim, through orthopedic surgery, to help them achieve those goals.
Q: What is the most rewarding part of your career?
Answer: The most rewarding part for me is seeing a patient return to function following the surgery. When a patient is able to return to a sport, occupation or hobby it is very satisfying. When the patient’s satisfaction turns to gratitude, it makes me feel good about the role I played in getting them back to their activity.
