I love being a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. I have been in practice for 30 years, specializing in treating scoliosis and trauma, and performing arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery. As I analyze each injury or condition, I determine how it is impacting a child’s life. This thoughtful analysis allows me to bring each patient to a level of health where they can enjoy life without pain. For me, surgery is always a last resort.

As a young man, I learned from my grandmother that when you change a child’s life, you change the world. Each day I am blessed to be able to care for children and change lives for the better. During my training, I had the privilege of being mentored by Dr. John Hall at Boston Children’s Hospital. He was a kind man who took care of children as if they were his own. He was one of the most skilled surgeons I have ever seen and every day I strive to be a little closer to the example he set.

When children smile, they can become kids again and continue to enjoy their lives. My goal is to treat children so well that they can return to their regular life as soon as possible, and never have to think about me again. To me, that is the greatest gift I can give and that is my passion.
