About me

I always wanted to be a doctor ever since I was a child, it was my passion. Orthopedic sufferings limit the quality of peoples' lives. In many cases these sufferings occur suddenly and can be disabling. It is extremely rewarding to help my patients overcome those problems, help them recuperate, and allow them to return to those activities they once enjoyed. The most fulfilling aspect of my job is when my patients are able to enjoy the life they deserve.
