I joined HealthPartners Medical Group in 2006. I specialize in the treatment of shoulder and knee injuries with an emphasis on Sports Medicine injuries and arthroscopic procedures, as well as complex shoulder and knee reconstruction and joint replacement. I am Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery and a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, Thomas B. Quigley Sports Medicine Society, as well as Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. I graduated from Harvard University with a B.A. degree in biology. I completed my residency in orthopaedic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City and went on to do my training with team physicians for the New York Jets, New York Rangers, and New York Islanders professional sports teams. I went on to complete a one-year fellowship in Sports Medicine at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Hospital in Chicago which focused on advanced shoulder and knee surgical techniques. I have authored several book chapters, technique guides, and journal articles on ACL reconstruction, rehabilitation of knee injuries, and cartilage transplantation procedures in the knee. I have also served as a master instructor for the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. I live in St. Paul and in my spare time I enjoy curling, golfing, and cooking.
