Bio

Q: What are some of your recent accomplishments?

Answer: In June 2017 I began offering computer-assisted, minimally invasive total shoulder replacements for some select patients. In December 2016, I passed the board recertification exam for both Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Surgery with flying colors. I am certified through 2029.

Q: What is your area of special training and interest?

Answer: Shoulder/Upper Extremity/Sports

Q: What led you to become an Orthopedic Surgeon?

Answer: In high school, I fractured my leg in three places. The surgeon who fixed me was very impressive and he seemed to really enjoy his work.

Q: What drew you to begin practicing in the Franklin County area?

Answer: My wife and I met while in the U.S. Air Force. We've seen a lot of places around the world, but I think Central PA is a great place to live and raise a family. Plus, I'm close to my mom.

Q: What would you say is a common misconception about orthopedics?

Answer: Surgery in the past required a big incision. Now many conditions can be addressed arthroscopically or with very minimal incisions and people can go home the same day.

Q: What are you most looking forward to about working in Franklin County?

Answer: The people here are friendly and enjoyable to take care of. There is a great mix in this area of kids, retired folks, hardworking farmers, military families, athletes, etc.

Q: What hobbies or interests do you enjoy outside of your career?

Answer: I love to spend time with my wife and four boys. When I can, I like to run and swim. I obtained my pilot's license while in the U.S. Air Force and I'd like to get back into that soon.
