What’s an interesting tidbit about you?

I was a firefighter prior to entering medical school.

Why did you go into medicine?

I first became interested in medicine after becoming certified as an emergency medical technician (EMT) and working in emergency medical services at age 16.

How did you choose orthopedics?

I realized orthopedics would provide me with the opportunity and privilege to have immediate, significant and lasting impacts on patients’ lives. Whether it’s by fixing a bone fractured in an unexpected accident or replacing an arthritic joint worn out from years of activity, orthopedics allows me to identify a problem and correct it, which is incredibly gratifying.
