What is your background?
I attended Brophy College Prep HS here in Phoenix before meeting my wife at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. From there, I came back to Arizona to attend medical school at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson. I was fortunate to match at Georgetown University Hospital for an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency. After five years of residency, I completed a fellowship in Adult Joint Reconstruction, specializing in hip and knee replacement surgery close by at the Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic in Alexandria, VA.
What are you passionate about?
I love spending time with my family and being a part of my children’s lives. I am an avid cyclist having completed in multiple century rides over the years. I also enjoy taking photographs, playing the piano and many other outdoor activities.
What sets your practice apart from others?
In the current setting of impersonal and large hospital groups and physician practices where you are never quite sure who you are getting, I am proud to continue a tradition and feel of a more small-town community practice in joining my Dad who has been serving this community’s orthopedic needs for almost 35 years.
