“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.” – Steve Jobs 

What’s an interesting tidbit about you?

I have been snowboarding since I was in elementary school, but I have never broken a bone out on the slopes (yet).

Why did you go into medicine?

I went into medicine for many reasons. Medicine is teamwork, every step of the way. There are not many jobs where you can be part of a team that shows up to work every day with the desire and ability to help people directly and make them happier. I enjoy having colleagues with similar goals as myself and meeting new patients every day whom I can educate and help guide through a tough time in their life.

How did you choose orthopedics?

I chose orthopedics because it is truly a specialty in which the physician must rely on a patient’s history, physical exam and knowledge of anatomy. As a person who enjoys and excels at hands-on work, I chose orthopedics because I felt I could make the greatest impact on my patients’ lives. There is no population that is spared from orthopedic disorders, and the variety of conditions that orthopedic surgeons treat is unparalleled. Treatment options evolve as technology improves, which makes the field of orthopedics intellectually stimulating for me as well.
