Professional Summary:

As an orthopaedic surgeon, my clinical practice focuses on hand and upper extremity surgery. I also perform microsurgery such as nerve repair and microvascular anastomoses, including digital replants. I see patients at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at both the Amherst and Orchard Park locations, and at the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). I also take orthopaedic trauma call at ECMC, where I treat fractures of the upper and lower extremities. Within UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, I am referred some of the most challenging fractures of the upper extremity, and I treat them all with the highest level of confidence and professionalism. I am dedicated to providing excellent care to my patients, helping them return to work and play and to daily activities that were painful or problematic before.

I hope to conduct research related to trauma of the upper extremity and arthritis of the hand, research areas that I have profound interest in. Results from this research will help improve the care of our patients and move forward surgical techniques and interventions.

Serving as a faculty member of the Department of Orthopaedics is rewarding. It is gratifying to watch the skill level of my trainees increase, and their knowledge base grow, as they work with me. I am very demanding of the residents I train, and I expect excellence from everyone who works with me. I also demand the same level of performance from myself; by doing so, I set a standard of medical care for the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons.
