I understand that a child is the most important thing in the world to a parent. So I try to be aware of this parent-child bond when providing pediatric care.”

My approach to patient care is based on the philosophy that every person is different, and everyone deserves treatment specifically aligned with their individual needs. As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in pediatric care, I understand that a child is the most important thing in the world to a parent, and I am sensitive to this bond when caring for children with musculoskeletal injuries or conditions. I am Fellowship-trained in pediatric orthopedics and spinal deformities. I am specialty-trained in pediatric and adolescent sports medicine, pediatric and adult scoliosis, cerebral palsy, congenital hip and foot disorders, pediatric fracture management, and limb deformities, including the use of the Ilizarov Method of circular external fixation. Using the latest nonsurgical and surgical techniques, I am dedicated to helping my patients get active and stay active and feel healthy.

In addition to treating patients at OrthoNorCal, I also enjoy music, photography, scuba diving, and traveling. I have been married 30 years, and have two grown children.

Please let me know if there is anything my staff and I can do to improve your experience at OrthoNorCal. I look forward to meeting you!
