  • Practicing Specialty: Foot and Ankle Surgery
  • Doctor

I am a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon/podiatrist specializing in comprehensive reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, including total ankle replacement. I received advanced fellowship training in traumatic and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery from the renowned Kaiser Permanente in Atlanta, Georgia. During my fellowship, my training focused on reconstructive forefoot, rearfoot, and ankle surgery, total ankle replacement, arthroscopic ankle surgery, sports medicine, and trauma. Prior to fellowship, I completed a high-volume comprehensive surgical residency program at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. This provided extensive training in all aspects of reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, lower extremity trauma surgery, and diabetic limb salvage. I have special interest in arthritis of the foot and ankle, bunions, flatfoot reconstruction, Achilles tendon injuries/pathology, ankle arthroscopy, ankle fractures, foot fractures, and advanced ankle cartilage repair.

I am a firm believer in educating patients on their condition(s), giving them the needed information to make informed medical decisions about their care and treatment plan. I have spent years receiving the best training available so that I may serve my patients, improve their pain, and keep them active. I look forward to helping them reach their healthcare goals I am originally from Mason City, Iowa and I am married. My wife and I have three small children that always keep us busy. Outside of work, I love playing with my kids, as well as fishing (especially Walleye), golf, and playing men's league ice hockey. I love to cook, mow the lawn, and run the snow blower
