What drew you to orthopedic surgery?
I was drawn to orthopedic surgery because of my love of sports and an active lifestyle; I have committed my career to maintaining and restoring an active life for myself and my patients. Also, for those interested, legos are a great start to this career!
What are your particular interests/expertise within the field?
My interests in orthopedics are many. I am a fellowship-trained arthroscopic sports medicine surgeon, specializing in treating the highest levels of sports injury, including knee, shoulder, and elbow ligament reconstruction. In addition, I have a specialty in trauma reconstruction and joint replacement.
What do you enjoy about practicing medicine in a community like Newport?
My connection to Newport goes back to before the Pell Bridge was built. I have been a part of the Newport community off and on since 1968, and I am proud to be locating here full-time as your local orthopedic surgeon.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Some of my favorite free time enjoyments include yearly heli-ski trips to Canada; sailing in Newport; construction; biking and running.
