Patient/Provider Philosophy

It is important to me that patients are treated with compassion and kindness. Every patient has a unique journey and individual goals, and understanding these is key to developing an effective treatment plan. Both surgical and nonsurgical options are reviewed with patients, and we work together to pursue the optimal treatment for their particular needs.

Every patient should have a good understanding of the treatments and procedures they are undergoing. I use mechanical replicas and models to demonstrate conditions and surgical treatments, and encourage questions throughout every stage of treatment. To deliver the best possible outcomes for my patients, I use the latest technologies and techniques, including robotics and novel approaches. My priority is to get patients back to their normal activities as quickly as possible, provide long term relief, and follow through until they reach their goals. 

Prior to joining PCI, I was in private practice for 5 years in Wisconsin and completed a fellowship specializing in hip and knee replacements, revision surgery, treatment of complications, and robotics. 

Why PCI?

I joined PCI because I was extremely impressed with the dedication of the providers at PCI to their patients. PCI provides comprehensive care to patients with a large group of highly trained specialists. Every patient receives individualized care that caters to their specific needs.
