After having trained at New York Medical College, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Boston Children’s Hospital, I returned to my home state of New Jersey to start my career in pediatric orthopedics.

Patients should know that when they walk into The Pediatric Orthopedic Center they will receive some of the best pediatric orthopedic care in the tri-state area. I make every effort to ensure that my patients are comfortable and able to get back to the life and level of activity they had before as safely and as quickly as possible. My specialties include pediatric growth plate-sparing ACL reconstruction as well as additional pediatric sports procedures, pediatric trauma and pediatric hip preservation procedures. I typically take a conservative approach to treatment rather than jumping directly to a surgical solution. Children often can heal and thrive non-operatively in certain situations where an adult’s only option may be surgical.

My goal is to make patients and their families feel at ease. This includes having detailed conversations with them to ensure they understand all potential options that are available and to discuss the risks and benefits of each treatment option. I encourage patients to ask as many questions as they need so they leave feeling fully informed. It’s extremely satisfying when I receive personal cards or drawings from my patients that show their gratitude for my compassionate care. My greatest joy, however, is to see my patients fully recovered and returned to their sports and other activities.
